Richard "JUNK" Junkin has always lived on the edge of trouble. A former professional football star who's career was cut short by injury (and gambling problems), he now finds himself selling cars in New Jersey, dreaming of what-might-have-been and lusting after his boss's unbelievably spoiled, unbelievably sexy and unbelievably rich daughter, Victoria.

So when the boss asks him to be her personal bodyguard as she tears up the New York City club scene, he leaps at the chance. But before long Junk becomes more of a lapdog than a chaperone, doing all of Victoria's dirty work...up to, and including, murder.

This is the story of FILTHY RICH--the story of a disgraced man with a chip on his shoulder whose best years are behind him, dropped in the middle of a group of over-privileged rich girls ruthlessly competing with each other. For the love of a filthy rich girl (that he knows in his heart won't redeem him), he'll do whatever it takes because he just can't resist the hell of a ride she takes him on...in the fast lane. Without any brakes.

User Review  - ivan.frade - LibraryThing

Short and intense although it is not a very original plot. A usual femme fatale story with a guy that makes his way always (and only) with his fists. The drawing style looks good but is confusing at times. Read full review

User Review  - iftyzaidi - LibraryThing

Very noir, very gritty graphic novel that seems to owe a great deal to the Sin City series (thankfully it isn't as moronic). The anti-hero protagonist is so dislikeable that its hard to really engage with him, or any of the other, mostly seedy, characters. Read full review
