Angel Dare went into Witness Protection to escape her past - not as a porn star, but as a killer who took down the sex slavery ring that destroyed her life. But sometimes the past won't stay buried. When a former co-star is gunned down, it's up to Angel to get his son, a hotheaded MMA fighter, safely through the Arizona desert, shady Mexican bordertowns, and the neon mirage of Las Vegas...

Review:

"An incisively and stylishly written noir thriller... compelling." --Ramsey Campbell

"An instant pulp classic." --Rolling Stone

"Money Shot is a stunner, careening along with a wild, propulsive energy and a deliciously incendiary spirit. Laced with bravado and loaded up with knockabout charm, Christa Faust's Hard Case debut is the literary equivalent of a gasoline cocktail." --Megan Abbott

"The sex industry, bodybuilding drugs, and basic revenge make for a potent cocktail in this eye-popping follow-up to Faust's Edgar Award nominee. She's Hard Case Crime's only female author, and her tough heroine is a welcome addition to the gritty pulp tradition. Snap it up..." --Library Journal

"Faust's tough gal heroine and punchy way of delivering her violent plot quickly grabbed this reader." --Blog Critics

"The First Lady (of Hard Case Crime) is certainly earning her stars and stripes in the crime fiction world." --We Love This Book

"Faust pumps pulp fiction into contemporary focus with the acerbic wit of a demonic Dorothy Parker and the caustic eye for the human condition of vintage Jim Thompson." --The Guardian

"Money Shot is a stunner, careening along with a wild, propulsive energy and a deliciously incendiary spirit. Laced with bravado and loaded up with knockabout charm, Christa Faust's Hard Case debut is the literary equivalent of a gasoline cocktail." --Megan Abbott

"The First Lady (of Hard Case Crime) is certainly earning her stars and stripes in the crime fiction world." --We Love This Book
