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

Folks, this one is a full-out shocker. Trust me. I've read some dark books this year, but nothing quite approaches this one. It'll take you places you might not want to go. Angel Noir eBook: Fred Zackel: Kindle Store: “Angel Noir” is horror / crime / suspense from the author of THE BLONDE IN THE RED CORVETTE, CREEPIER THAN A WHOREHOUSE KISS, and TIGHT FIT IN A LONG COLD BOX. "You can't kill an angel, fallen or otherwise." What if Angels had free will? What if they had vengeance in their heart? They met one night at the Rowdy Yates Cantina near the California-Nevada stateline. She drank mezcal tequila and played lead guitar in an all-girl hard rock band. He was a serial killer with a baker's dozen under his belt. She could have been just a ditsy, sickly blonde in dreadlocks living alone in a rusty trailer in the Mohave Desert. He prowled the Interstates west of the Rockies giving into his urges and rage. Face to face, eye to eye and belly to belly, they were both dead wrong about each other. "Wrestling with your angel might be another form of foreplay." Intense themes. Intense situations. Language and violence. Not for the squeamish.
