The Naked Dame

Adult
Rated 3.50/5 based on 2 reviews
Guy Redding was a photographer trying to make ends meet. After a few years snapping photos of bad people doing bad things, he was practically a gumshoe. And when a beautiful naked blonde crossed his path, he suddenly had a very personal mystery to solve.

With the entire LA police force--and his past--out to get him, Guy had exactly two days to find answers to the questions that matter most.

Review by: Justin Bzdek on July 17, 2011 :
Mr. Bovberg's The Naked Dame is a sexy, smart pulp noir treat that keeps you turning the pages until its tight -- but not too neat -- ending. It's a nice combination of crime noir byzantineness and plot coherence that holds together better than you think it is going to halfway through. It's the right combination of tribute and nostalgia, with a modern twist, and the descriptions of Los Angeles in the '50s seem credible. The writing is sophisticated without hitting you over the head with MFA over-floweriness, and the characters and interesting and believable. A recommended read.

Review by: Kevin Cadigan on May 04, 2011 :
Not having read any noir fiction before, I didn't really know what I was in for when I started The Naked Dame. As it turns out, I was not disappointed. While the plot moves along nicely, it's one of the few books that I've read recently that goes out with a bang instead of a whimper. Too many authors have their books fizzle out (such as Michael Connelly), but I was completely satisfied by how everything was tied together at the end.

I would definitely recommend this book.
