9781936965007: The Platinum Loop

The new novel of suspense and dark humor from the author of Crimson Orgy is... THE PLATINUM LOOP. Las Vegas, 1973. Two-bit film producer Gene Hoffman is flat broke and desperate to wash away the sins of his recent past. When he meets a low-rent hustler named Floyd Manning who promises an easy payday with minimal risk, Gene enters into a scheme that looks like salvation. It quickly turns into a nightmare. The unlikely ticket to riches at the center of their plan: a raunchy home movie starring the most famous Hollywood blonde of the 20th century. She’s not quite who Gene expects her to be, and she comes with a price far greater than he can pay. Pursued by a trio of vengeful Texas oilmen and a seedy private investigator hired for murder, Gene and Floyd embark on a twisted odyssey that takes them from the gambling pits of Vegas to the darkest corners of Tinsel Town to the lawless wilds of Tijuana. At the end of that trail waits a dangerous man of limitless means who will solve all their problems, one way or another. Tender and violent, comic and dark, sexy and suspenseful, THE PLATINUM LOOP by Austin Williams is a breakneck ride from start to finish.

Review:

From Publishers Weekly

“Pulp fun at its best, Williams' second novel combines Elmore Leonard's style with a sleazy Vegas setting... con man Floyd Manning meets down on his luck film producer Gene Hoffman and proposes a dangerous ploy... these two are scheming losers, and their engaging dynamic contributes to the novel's fast pace. (Nov.)”

From Booklist

“Las Vegas, 1973... nearly every character is a scammer, or is planning to kill someone, or is simply crazy... Williams offers both laughs and action as the bizarre plot unwinds... noirish bizzaro fun, and recent news stories about a real Marilyn Monroe stag loop may heighten reader interest.”
