PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention

If you like hardboiled fiction, you can't go wrong here. Sand's War (9781605435978): Ennis Willie, Max Allan Collins: Books: Bounding out of a violent past comes SAND . . . So begins the second volume of hardboiled novellas about the toughest guy around, Sand. Just Sand. Written in 1963 by the enigmatic Ennis Willie, HAVEN FOR THE DAMNED and THE SCARLET GODDESS thrust Sand on an innocent and cruel world and God help the world. Max Allan Collins, who knows his way around a violent novel or two, introduces SAND'S WAR and gives you ample warning about why you should fear Sand, but it's doubtful you'll heed him. Sand is just too tempting and by the time you have two toes dipped into the raging torrent of Sand's life you'll be sucked in for a ride you just might never recover from -- until the next Sand thriller from Ennis Willie and Ramble House. "Some of the toughest, smoothest hardboiled novels...Miniature masterpieces with an ambience all their own. Part Spillane, part spaghetti-western -- all Ennis Willie."
