Fade to Blonde

by Max Phillips

She Was A Little Taste of Heaven And A One-Way Ticket To Hell!

Ray Corson came to Hollywood to be a screenwriter, not hired muscle. But when a beautiful girl with a purse full of cash asks for your help, how can you say no? So Corson agrees to protect starlet Rebecca LaFontaine from a vengeful mobster -- but what he doesn't realize is that he'll have to join the Mob to do it.

  • First publication anywhere

  • Highly praised author has published novels in hardcover with Henry Holt and Little Brown

  • Publishers Weekly on FADE TO BLONDE: "A hard-boiled whodunit sure to thrill fans of such Golden Age masters as James M. Cain...Deftly balances terse yet tender introspection with hard-hitting physical action...The convincingly understated, witty repartee between guy and gal--and their gangster pals--prevents the book from descending, for even a paragraph, into period pulp parody. They do write 'em like they used to."

  • January Magazine on FADE TO BLONDE: "Sharp, savvy, and unapologetically raunchy...this taut, hard novel is a winner."

  • More raves for the work of Max Phillips...

    "A rip-roaring page-turner." -- New York Newsday

    "Masterfully told." -- The Seattle Times

    "The author has the eye and the ear and the cojones to keep pace with all this fond brutality." -- The New Yorker

    "A dark, dangerous style." -- The New York Times

    "Inventive, vividly written...highly entertaining." -- Kirkus Reviews

    "It's been said that FADE TO BLONDE could have been a Gold Medal novel. It certainly could have. It's easily one of the best books I've read this year." -- James Reasoner, author of TEXAS WIND
