Overview

Presenting Heavy Metal Pulp, a new line of novels combining noir fiction with fantastic art featuring the theme, story lines, and graphic styles of Heavy Metal magazine.

Following the explosive events of book one, Pleasure Model, Detective Rook Venner, Mistress Julia, and Plesur are on the run from the government troops trying to kill them and from a shadowy group that wants to capture Plesur alive for its own purposes. What secrets have been implanted in Plesur’s head—and why are they worth killing for?

Caught between these two powerful rivals, the trio hides out in the lawless New Jersey territory. Betrayed by gang members looking to collect the bounty on Plesur’s head, the three are separated, and Rook and Mistress Julia find themselves in mortal danger. Julia, given as a prize to a gang member, finds herself in chains, but not without her own means of fighting back. Rook, forced to fight for his life in the gang’s bloodthirsty gladiatorial games, must stay alive long enough to rescue Plesur, but time is running out.

The Bloodstained Man is a fast-paced, adrenaline-filled ride through a future where pleasure has a price, and Plesur holds the key to a secret that could rock the country to its very core.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This slight second novel in Rowley's pulp-noir Netherworld series barely advances the plot jump-started in 2009's Pleasure Model. Ex-homicide detective Rook Venner is still on the run with Plesur, a sex android who carries top-secret data that has made her the quarry of the government, the military, and possibly a shadowy private agency. A rendezvous with a vice-presidential aspirant whose name has been programmed into Plesur promises to clear up some of the mystery of why she is being pursued, but it's interrupted by a band of marauding mercenaries who kidnap the refugees and force Rook to fight a series of gratuitously brutal gladiatorial matches that take up much of the novel's first half. Abundant car chases, pyrotechnic gunfights, and sexual interludes only point up the story's thin substance, and sketchy illustrations by artist Justin Norman distract more than they enhance. (July)
