Hoodtown

(2004)
A Lucha-noir Novel
A novel by

 
From the publishers of long-renowned Mexican masked wrestler pop-culture magazine "From Parts Unknown" comes this new lucha libre inspired pulp noir novel.

Hoodtown is a ghetto of masked wrestlers - an inner-city sanctuary of hooded culture, with a masked lifestyle evolved from 20th century Mexican pro wrestling, and inspired by icons such as El Santo and Mil Mascaras. The family gimmick is sacred, the mask is the sole expression of one's identity.

Now, 'Hood' prostitutes are turning up dead, and worse, UNMASKED, and the 'Skin'establishment is as much help as a paid-off referee. Enter X, former luchadora with a bruised past, a bum knee, and no time to play Santo. She's no hero, but there's nobody else to tag-in, as her hunt for the killer uncovers a conspiracy threatening all maskedkind.

In short, Hoodtown is like Casablanca with wrestling masks.
