Black Sails, Disco Inferno

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Japan
Category: 
Crime Fiction
Noir
Pulp

An unnamed city, in which crime families flourish and police pinch pennies from those with most power...

Black Sails, Disco Inferno retells the classic medieval romance of Tristan and Iseult by turning things on their head, reversing the sex of our chief protagonists, and then placing them in a '70s pulp/noir world.

Andrez Bergen's latest novel (with Renee Asher Pickup) exposes Trista and Issy to a sensual, disco-infused narrative — one overflowing with double-dealings, violent

brutality, and a spellbinding mystery.
