#amreading - Black Sails, Disco Inferno by Andrez Bergen

Author Name: 

Lots of things I should have done over the weekend but the first mention of Funky Town and I was gone for all money....

From the Blurb:

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.

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.

Currently Reading - Hard Labour, The Crime Factory

Book Title: 

Never made any secret of my liking for short story collections, and the darker the better - which makes my dipping in and out of this little gem of a collection somewhat of a treat. Although I do think I should be smoking a cigarette, drinking straight scotch and sat somewhere dark and vaguely sinister...
