New York, NY, United States, 2012/03/08 - The Darkest Stories Lurk In Unsuspecting Places. Author Bonnie Kozek’s latest book is raw, thrilling, noir fiction at the top of its game (ISBN: 0615443176, 978-0615443171) - BonnieKozek.com.
Life is hard, love hurts, and the line between love and death is always shifting. Welcome to the twisted world of Honey McGuinness.
In Just Before the Dawn, the second installment of a series, author Bonnie Kozek’s Honey tries to escape her tormented past and the pain of unrequited love by holing up in Pie Town, pop. 86. She’s not looking for much. A little shelter from the storm would be fine.
A ceasefire with the forces that continually conspire to use her as a punching bag would be dandy. So she settles in, gets herself a job, a place to hang her hat. She starts to think that maybe life is going to cooperative this time. Turns out she's wrong. Dead wrong.
Just Before the Dawn is a chilling and brutal tromp through the id of small town America, where nothing is what it appears to be. Beneath the façade of normalcy lurk secrets dark and unholy: mind-bending psychedelics, drug-induced orgies, and psycho-killers. And when Honey emerges – reluctantly – from a long self-imposed celibacy and goes on the prowl, she unwittingly unearths the terrifying truth and is soon entrapped in a lethal XXX-rated nightmare of biblical proportions.
In the end the only question is: Will there be enough body bags to pick up the pieces?
What people are saying: I've been anticipating Kozek's second Honey McGuinness book, hoping it would be as sharp as her first novel. I'm happy to report it doesn't disappoint. This is classic noir, with a modern grunge/pulp feel. It's raw and uncensored, and, like the title implies, it's dark. Honey McGuinness is the American version of Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)…for those of us who love this genre, this is as good as it gets. – Billy Lee Thompson, Amazon Reviewer
