"Someone once said of
Raymond Chandler that he wrote 'as if pain hurt and life mattered.'
That's true of Josh Stallings, too. Hop on, kick the starter, and let
him lead you on a long, painful, but entertaining ride through Moses
McGuire's world. One hint: wear your helmet and your leathers. It
might get messy." -Tad Williams (NY Times Best selling author"

"The man knows what to do with paper and ink. Read the damn thing." -Charlie Huston (Author, Hank Thompson Trilogy)

"This
is one of the best books that I've read this year. No question. Lean,
but with depth. Violent, yet human. BEAUTIFUL, NAKED & DEAD shines
as a perfect example of what can still be done within genre work."
Johnny Shaw
(Author, Dove Season and Big Maria)

"Stallings
has this way of writing, this brutally stunning way with words that
rips a character right open in front of you - shows you it all - blood
dripping, heart beating, the darkness aflame." - Ian Ayris (Author, Abide With Me)

"This
novel deserves mention, praise, attention, and indeed any treatment
that would ultimately result in such a magnificent book by such a
talented writer attaining commercial success and widespread
house-hold-name recognition." - Pearce Hansen (Author, Storm Gods)

BEAUTIFUL,
NAKED AND DEAD  From East L.A. home, through the legal brothels of
Nevada and finally to a battle with the mob in the mountains above Palo
Alto, this is a sex soaked, rage driven, road trip from hell.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book
