From the inside flap:
"Adam Julian, son of a Hollywood screenwriter has a life would kill for - and some would kill to keep. He's tangled in a web of forced sex and coerced robbery where killing becomes the only free choice he can make. . ."
There's plenty of the titular elements - as well healthy doses of gory, tar black humor - in this entertaining neo-noir rollercoaster writ large and ultra-sleazy, with some fresh twists thrown into the mix.
Worth owning, this.
