Review: After Delores

User Review  - James Rhodes - Goodreads

Noir and dystopia abound in this clever play on pulp genres. The protagonist is a detective determined to track down her lost ex for no other reason than to kill her. The glib concept of the novel is rescued by the strength of the writing which is at all times subversive and well executed. Read full review
