John Blake and Miranda Sugarman dated in high school, but after graduation they went their separate ways: he stayed in New York City and became a private investigator, while she moved to the midwest and settled down to a safe, respectable life as an eye doctor. Or so he thought – until the day, 10 years later, when he opened the Daily News and saw Miranda’s photo staring out at him under the headline “STRIPPER MURDERED.” John wants to find out how Miranda ended up stripping for a living. What happened to Miranda’s college roommate, Jocelyn, who also dropped out when Miranda did? And just how was Miranda involved with small-time drug dealer Murco Khachadurian? The closer John gets to the answers, the more dangerous and violent the case becomes, until a bloody assault on someone close to him leads John to a shocking discovery and a shattering face-off with the person responsible.

They thought she’d be easy. They thought wrong. It all began with the phone call asking former porn star Angel Dare to do one more movie. Before she knew it, she’d been shot and left for dead in the trunk of a car. But Angel is a survivor. And that means she’ll get to the bottom of what’s been done to her, even if she has to leave a trail of bodies along the way….

  1. Of the HCC books I have read over the past couple years in their book club – those three are easily within my top 5. Those are fantastic stories and well worth looking into an audio version if you like crime noir.

    Thanks for the news!

  2. I had no idea these were out there, and I subscribe to the HCC newsletter and check the site regularly!

    I haven’t read Money Shot yet, but Little Girl Lost, Songs of Innocence, and The Confession (mentioned a couple of blog posts up) are all excellent.

    If anyone’s curiosity is aroused by this post or the upcoming podcast, note that it’s important to read (or listen to) Little Girl Lost before Songs of Innocence.
