    Book details

What if Hard Case Crime had been founded 50 years ago, by a rascal out to make a quick buck ? Such a fellow might make a few enemies especially after publishing a supposed non-fiction account of a heist at a Mob-run nightclub, actually penned by an 18-year-old showgirl. Our heroes are about to learn that reading and writing pulp novels is a lot more fun than living them...

Charles Ardai is the founder and editor of Hard Case Crime and the Edgar Award-winning author of the acclaimed novels Little Girl Lost and Songs of Innocence

Review Text

  • By Wayne Simmons on 11 September 2015

    Fifty-to-One is a very special book for Hard Case Crime fans, marking the press's 50th release. Rather fittingly, then, it's the story of a down-on-his-luck publisher commissioning the wrong book and finding himself in all sorts of trouble with the mob, the cops and just about everyone else he runs into. We follow the author of said book and wannabe dancer, Trixie, for most of the story, Ardai's style and mood very much like the pulptastic Gabriel Hunt series he edits (and occasionally writes within) as opposed to the darker, neo-noir of his Richard Aleas persona. It's the perfect vibe for this book, a light-hearted homage to the noir and pulp that Hard Case Crime has celebrated since its conception back in 2001. There have been another 50 since then, and some. And here's to many more from HCC!

    Not as good as I expected.The book was given lots of kudos in advance,but methinks it was `cause of the author.If it was anyone else,it`d have got a lukewarm reception - which was all it deserved.
