Sex and Violence in Hollywood by Ray Garton

(hb; 2001)

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.
