Book Description

The third novella from Danny Hogan is soon to hit the stands. Set fifty years into an uncertain future, an unnamed apocalypse has sent civilization two hundred years into the past. The once proud state of Texas has been literally returned to its wild west origins.
Enter a gunfighter, Jezebel Misery St. Etienne, young and vicious. Although she will do anything to escape an honest day's labour she is righteous of heart and strong of spirit. From her home in Austin she is called upon to escort a girl called Alice across the badlands of East Texas, filled with savage mutants and evil outlaws, to Houston. Little does she know that Alice is seeking vengeance against the posse that decimated her family, and that by the end, it will be Jezebel herself who will be seeking that vengeance. Her and her old .44.

5.0 out of 5 stars Six shots right on target! March 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The Apocalypse isn't just a bunch of old rocks in Greece, you know? It's The End Of Days. The Second Dark Age. Scary, eh? And it's going to be great! Well, if Danny Hogan's brilliant Jailbait Justice is in any way prophetic it will be.

Jailbait Justice is the story of Jezebel Misery St Etienne, who made her first blood soaked appearance in Pulp Metal Magazine. Jezebel is a tough and funny sharpshooter with a dirty mouth. Like Mad Max and Tank Girl's inglorious bastard off-spring, she rights wrongs across a post apocalypse landscape with the aid of a massive gun called Comeuppance

In Jailbait Justice Jezebel is lumbered with taking a mouse of a girl called Alice across the badlands to the bright lights and apparent sanctuary of Houston. This sparky relationship has echoes of the films Three Mules For Sister Sarah and The African Queen and it gives the story an extra bullet in its barrel. Along the way the quarrelsome pair encounter bloodthirsty bandits, freaks, cannibals and all manner of danger.

Danny Hogan's previous novellas for Brit Grit publishers Pulp Press were both cracking reads but with Jailbait Justice he has excelled himself. Horror, sci-fi and spaghetti western all violently collide in a story that is visceral, scary, funny, exciting and so clearly crying out for a sequel. Or two. Jailbait Justice is the sort of book that you throw a sicky to finish!

Six shots right on target!

4.0 out of 5 stars A cracking good read October 6, 2011
Format:Paperback
Jailbait Justice, by Danny Hogan, is one cracking good read. 23,000 words of pure pulp fun and at $2.99 on the Kindle, a pure steal. Imaginative without skimping on the blood or the story.

"I will tell you this, hand on heart, I ain't good for much at all. I can cook a meal fair enough and, when a nice tune kicks up, I have been known to dance in a way that'd attract the fellas like bees around honey. That was about it except, of course, for killing. And, in these wretched times, where a girl's only chance is her old .44, it ain't a bad thing to be good at."

Titular character Jezebel Misery St. Etienne (easily wins this year's prize for coolest character name) is a gun for hire in postapocalypse Texas. True enough, there are a couple plot holes here and there, but not so's you notice enough to ruin the fun. One of those books that will keep you reading just for the sheer joy of it. Go grab it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun at the End of the World September 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's something awful alluring about the post-Apocalyptic novel, isn't there? It's a great tradition, and one that opens up to all kinds of possibilites, serious and comic.
Danny Hogan's third novel, Jailbait Justice, takes place in such a world, populated with gunslingers, mutants, roving bandits and general ne'er-do-wells in a decidedly Old West-style.
Strutting through this world is Jezebel St. Ettienne, a misfit in a world of misfits, her only friend Comeuppance, the big-ass .44 she wears at her hip.
Against her better judgement (which is not that reliable anyway) Jezebel agrees to act as bodyguard for young, lady-like Alice on the dangerous journey from Austin to Houston, a perilous undertaking wrought with danger and weirdness at every turn. Waiting at the end of the journey: revenge against the powerful fella who killed Alice's family, and lots and lots of money.
Jailbait Justice is paced crazy-fast, the characters are all straight-out bizarro, and there's not a boring moment. But the real strength of the novel is Jezebel herself-- Hogan could easily have made her a more typical "hot chick with a gun", but instead he chose to make her a short, "curvy", foul-mouthed little roustabout with a green-double mohawk and a mouthful of chew. Jezebel has a strong sense of justice which seems inherent in her, but at the same time she won't hesitate to unload a few rounds from Comeuppance into your belly if the fancy strikes her. She's an all-around engaging heroine, and one I sincerely hope Hogan brings back in a sequel.
Lest you think I'm just gushing, I will point out that some of the editing is a bit loose, especially toward the end. Misspellings, typoes, what-not. I reckon that's just part of the deal with Kindle sometimes, though. It didn't effect my enjoyment of the novel.
