9780571326709: Sunset City

Twenty-two-year-old Charlotte Ford reconnects with Danielle, her best friend from high school, a few days before Danielle is found bludgeoned to death in a motel room. In the wake of the murder, Charlotte’s life unravels and she descends into the city’s underbelly, where she meets the strippers, pornographers, and drug dealers who surrounded Danielle in the years they were estranged.

Ginsburg’s Houston is part of a lesser known south, where the urban and rural collide gracelessly. In this shadowy world, culpability and sympathy blur in a debut novel which thrillingly brings its three female protagonists to the fore.

Scary, funny, and almost unbearably sad, Sunset City is written with rare grace and empathy holding you transfixed, praying for some kind of escape for Charlotte.

From the Back Cover:

Danielle Reeves was Charlotte Ford’s most loyal and vibrant friend, until Danielle’s drug problem landed her in prison. When she gets out, the two reconnect, hoping for a fresh start. Then, a detective shows up at Charlotte’s apartment. Danielle has been murdered, bludgeoned to death.

Overwhelmed by grief, Charlotte is determined to discover what happened, but the deeper Charlotte descends into Danielle’s dark world, the less she understands. Was Danielle a hapless victim or a master manipulator? Did she really want to start over, or was it all an act? To find out the truth, Charlotte must keep her head clear and her guard up. Houston has a way of feeding on bad habits and Charlotte doesn’t want to get swallowed whole.

About the Author:
