9780857683137: Fade to Blonde (Hard Case Crime Novels)

HE AGREED TO PROTECT HER FROM A VENGEFUL MOBSTER.  
HE JUST DIDN’T REALIZE HE’D HAVE TO JOIN THE MOB TO DO IT.

Ray Corson came to Hollywood to be a screenwriter, not hired muscle. But when money’s tight and a beautiful woman asks for your help, how can you say no?

But going up against a man like Lance Halliday takes more than just physical strength and the guts to use it. It takes friends in high places – or low ones. Soon, Ray finds himself on the payroll of Lenny Scarpa, L.A.’s chief drug supplier. Only Scarpa’s hiding secrets even darker than Halliday’s – and, as Ray discovers, Rebecca’s hiding the darkest secret of all...

About the Author:

Max Phillips’s novels, which have included Snakebite Sonnet and The Artist’s Wife, have won rave reviews in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Esquire, and other major publications. In 2005 he received the Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America for Fade to Blonde.

From Publishers Weekly:

Best known for his poetry and literary fiction (The Artist's Wife, etc.), Phillips contributes to a new crime imprint a hard-boiled whodunit sure to thrill fans of such Golden Age masters as James M. Cain. Ex-boxer/failed screenwriter Ray Corson is as tough talking—and as vulnerable to a pretty face—as any 1940s gumshoe. And terrified blonde bombshell Rebecca LaFontaine looks like a classic damsel in distress when she hires Corson to protect her from murderous rejected suitor Lance Halliday, a Hollywood porn producer. The author deftly balances his lovestruck hero's terse yet tender introspection with hard-hitting physical action, as Corson's investigation of Tinsel Town's tarnished underside uncovers drug dealing, gangland vengeance and evidence that the heroine's history may hold even deadlier secrets. Especially graceful is the way Phillips lightens the plot's noir darkness with delightfully breezy dialogue. The convincingly understated, witty repartee between guy and gal—and their gangster pals—prevents the book from descending, for even a paragraph, into period pulp parody. They do write 'em like they used to.
