Green Bay, WI (PressExposure) December 16, 2007 -- Hereâs what the critics are saying about Femme Noir: âNipper delivers an original take on the classic story of the womanizing investigator. Delaney is a tough and smart protagonist.â â S. Creamer @ Broadway
âMs. Nipper has an incredible voice.â - S. McLemore, Assistant Editor, Avon Publishers
âI appreciated the unique spin on the typically male hardboiled genre and also enjoyed the historical context she used to frame her plot.â - Caitlin Alexander, Bantam
âNipper has a unique voice and her unorthodox characters were appealing to me.â - L. Marrow, Ballentine
âDames, booze and murder is the oldest story in the book; but this time, it happens too fast to Nora Delaney, who is a notorious, womanizing college basketball coach. After her ex is found murdered, Nora chases the scent all the way from Los Angeles to Tulsa to find some right angles in this nasty business only to be waylaid by a gorgeous, gin-swilling skirt who has information as well as an appetite for women like Nora. Femme Noir is full of cock-eyed optimism, vivid sexual fantasy, tough broads and big babes who know their ways around drinks, trash talk and murder.
If you enjoy satire, youâll have fun with this book. Femme Noir is intended as a wry homage to retro outlooks of a bygone tough guy/femme fatale age. In this book is something to offend everyone.â ISBN: 978-0-6151-7045-9 259 pp. tpb $14.95
