Review

"In Hellcats, Vixens, & Vice Dolls, David Jacobs, noted true crime author of The Mafia's Greatest Hits and Sex Sadists: From The Files Of True Detective Magazine, poses the question, "Which is the deadlier of the species, the female or the male?" in his new collection of true crime tales of mid-century mayhem, USA.

"And what he unearths is an estrogen-fueled fetish feast of wasted lives, wanton sex and senseless violence. Featured are fifty femme fatales from the 1950s so hardboiled that their reckless exploits will leave any true crime reader with the sensation of being worked over with a sack of nickels!" -- NY Book Time

"HELLCATS, VIXENS AND VICE DOLLS is a fetish feast. Lusty lasses looking to light their Luckies. Bettie Page's freaky first cousin, the one she only sees during the summer and just got out of Juvie. Bound to give you an unbathed bullet-bra boner, va-va-Van Doren style!" -- Michael Benson, author of HOOKED UP FOR MURDER: First You Party, Then You Die

By S. Michael Wilson VINE VOICE on May 16, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bad girls and tough dames have always been a cornerstone of crime drama both in print and on the big screen. While that truth has held fast throughout the years, never were the girls so gritty and dangerous as they were in the fifties, and this book is living proof of that.

This collection of stories ripped right of the scandal rags of the fifties is sure to please any fan of the hardcore sleaze writing that most modern authors can only attempt to emulate. A must read, to say the least.

Format: Paperback
Hide your bankroll, slide yourself into a 57 Chevy and prepare for a nonstop wild ride into the go-go world of fifties' kink and crime. The cars are big, the music swings and the babes come with a price on their pretty little heads.

Checking their makeup in the rearview mirror while driving a fleeing getaway car or pistol whipping some hapless mug without even chipping a blood red fingernail, these desperate dames terrified and thrilled the rock `n roll generation with their true life tales of crime and heartache which have more twists than Dead Man's Curve.

Hellcats, Vixens and Vice Dolls is fueled with blood and high octane leaded gas... and does it go! Fifty femme fatales, with lust in their eyes and larceny in their hearts, race down easy street in a cloud of perfume and gunsmoke, looking for love, smack, and that one big score. Do yourself a favor and take the ride.

Venture back to the golden age of crime to meet the sex-crazed B-girls, murderous mob molls, sinister spinsters, and doped-up dames with this over-the-top testament to the immutable rule: CRIME DOES NOT PAY! Each story is 100% true and truly unforgettable - like the housewife who cut off her husband's head with a rusty saw because of his snoring. If your looking for a great read with fifties-style fast and snappy writing, well, this little number is for you!
