Overview

Hilarious, riveting tales from a photo-journalist in his relentless pursuit of fast money, exotic women, and debauchery. Brett Tate and his posse of Russian gazillionaire gangsters blast through Moscow's fast paced nightlife living large, leaving a carnal train wreck in their wake. Devious adventures with bizarre twists. They somehow manage to set new highs and new lows for depravity at the same time. The stories are packaged with screaming funny observation humor and candid to erotic photography as they tear up the town. Like a Beverly Hills mafia, the wealthy businessmen/degenerates spend their days in a sea of top-shelf imported booze, Colombian flake, and a human pyramid of nude models.

The writing captures the pulse and dark comedy fatalism of adrenaline junkies living the mobster lifestyle. Dangers and consequences are ignored. No expense is spared. The attitude, sights and sounds are described with a stunning clarity. Tate is a chest thumping Gladiator one second, self-deprecating and self-destructive the next. Brilliant; and yet clinically insane, written with the same amount of curiosity of the outcome as the reader's. You feel as if Tate is sitting next to you sharing his tales.

The energy and vivid descriptions are brought alive with the crisp images that accompany the story line. Cityscapes, random people mocked, and hundreds of erotic photos from inside the VIP strip clubs and brothels, from the chic nightclubs to the jacuzzi, capturing the face-melting gorgeous women with whom the trio indulge every vice.

But with all the outlandish antics and sex-drenched exploits, the icing on the cake is the cynical wit. Endless biting one-liners and satire.There's enough shock value to offend several generations of women.

Destined to be a cult classic.

Meet the Author

Exotic women. The allure of fast money. I've traveled the far corners of the globe, taking absurd risks with investments and my life, overindulged in every vice, bedded an embarrassingly large number of women, and savored the bounty from stimulating to obscene. For a decade I've authored Tales from the Trenches for a select few friends; penning and photographing the raw, the hilarious, and the erotic to psychotic adventures.

After years of provocation, and perhaps against my better judgment, they've convinced me that before I'm in prison or dead, I need to share some of my life's tales as a gambler, an adrenaline junkie and a binge-drinking nymphomaniac, for the world to peer at in awe, envy, or disgust.

The following is a true documentary of a typical four day trip of mayhem and debauchery a few years back. Seeing as there are dirty bankers, gangsters, brothels, drugs, guns, and few laws or morals respected, the participants names and conspicuous details have been changed to avoid an early dirt nap. Nostrovia.

    Fascinating and hilarious story

    A stunning tale of debauchery featuring hilarious adrenaline junkies in penthouse sex stories. This is live field reporting at its best, with ripping sarcastic wit, unexpected twists and turns, with and fantastic erotic photography and great shots around town covering the tales as they unfold. Take the best drunken sex-drenched story you've heard; this book is filled with ones funnier, wilder and raunchier by a factor of ten. My favorite thing is his cynical observation bits. Brilliant sarcasm. Scathingly funny punch lines. I mean howling laughing till tears with his hilarious exaggerated parodies of the people and situations as they happen.

    If you've ever traveled overseas, you know how the gloves come off and anything goes. These guys tear it up big time in upscale Moscow. Carousing in limos and megabucks sportscars, they pick off Moscovian hotties in chic cafes to strip clubs. This photo-documentary comes alive with sensual snapshots of Moscovian hotties competing for the prized ringside seats at the gangsters' table. The men are in-your-face ballsy and hysterical, as they overindulge at astonishing levels. Two, three, four girls at a time.several times a day, while 24/7 drinking and cocaine in obscene amounts while ripping non-stop one-liners and hilarious sarcastic comments.

    Tate has a highly contagious writing style; the right timing, pacing, the perfectly turned phrase and a curious eye for finding hilarity in details. His delivery is spot on. He's a raw comedian and yet intellectual, reminiscent of Hunter Thompson. A great storyteller, he knows just how to put you right there in the action with vivid descriptions. He brings the plot down, gets you guessing, and then shocks and peaks to an unexpected or spectacularly written ending that has you dropping the book shaking your head saying OMG that was unbelievable.

    And the hotties these guys corral are scorching. The endless supply of Russian models and strippers and schoolgirls unleash an explosive sexual appetite, happily diving headfirst into their vice pit wearing little more than a smile. High Heals and Dirty Deals is like watching a Penthouse movie version of James Bond - done in print. The men are reckless and impulsive, pushing it to the limit without the slightest fear of imminent self-destruction, and somehow manage to live and tell it all.

    Uninhibited insanity

    I spent an entire day rubbernecking in awe as I speed-read this. It's a hilarious memoir about overindulging maniacs of epic proportions, full of dry wit, outrageous sexual adventure, and stunning erotica photography. I felt inspired, envious, aroused, embarrassed...I felt stomach pains from laughing so hard. Tate is a talented, and creative writer with a vivid imagination. He specializes in hyperactive satire, using colorful observation humor seamlessly mixed into tales of pure, unadulterated debauchery.

    When painting a scene, he draws you in with long flowing adjectives and metaphors, scathing funny descriptions of people and events, followed by a build up into the unexpected punch line. I mean LOL funny lines by the hundreds. The story is fast and frantic, outlandish, and brutally honest. His ability to cynically channel the imagery is so real at times, you feel like you're right there, seeing and hearing the characters and situations as they unfold. It really puts you inside the frenzied mind of an adrenaline junkie; not a necessarily safe place, but fascinating and quite a ride.

    The lifestyle is heavy in attitude and shock value. Full of anarchy, the guys break numerous laws, corral women by the dozens, and in general live a life of pure havoc. All is done in good fun without any victims, and executed in the midst of doing business deals. The main characters are cocky and aggressive, and yet endearing with their witty repartee and ripping jokes. Their fearless energy and charisma attracts gorgeous women at every turn, and the sex situations are impulsive and graphic. These are the quintessential underworld bad boys out on the hunt; sex and overindulging are a competitive sport. The guys push each other in every scene to the limits with a "let's see if we can top this" approach, and they could care less about any consequences.

    What I liked best? The energy, the depraved passion, and the unpredictable chaos; a glimpse into a life few would dare to attempt, and be afraid to even witness. I also love how the story had great segues; repeated variations of jokes from previous chapters like in Seinfeld.

    One scene has amazing lust filled conquests, the next is full of ridiculously embarrassing disasters, and they just laugh it off. Tate writes in first and third person, almost from a curiosity standpoint. He`s enjoying the ride; the unfamiliarity of a foreign culture, the balance between risk, hilarious depravity and excesses.

    High Heels and Dirty Deals is sort of an upbeat version of Hunter Thompson`s Fear and Loathing, now that I think about it. A very original work, filled with 100s of crisp photographs of the historical Russian monuments, people mocked, and the beautiful women they hook up with. I found myself laughing out loud so often I had to read it in secrecy. Recommended reading technique would be to block off an afternoon, crack a bottle of Chivas, and read it a chapter or two at a time. After you finish the book, let a week go by and re-read it cover to cover. The second read is WAY better than the first. I found numerous things I missed the first round; once I knew his writing, lingo and joke style, I was more in tune with the story.

    Fascinating reading

    When I saw the screaming loud title of this book I immediately bought it. The characters are cocky hilarious mobster-businessmen and a photo-journalist. Theme is 24/7 VIP partying with models and strippers in Moscow. Habits are drinking, ridiculously funny commentary, and sex, sex, and more sex. If that offends you, pass. If you like great writing or are curious, this book is completely original and to me a comedy classic. Every guy I know has it. Even their girlfriends like it.

    Tate is a prolific storyteller. He builds the stories slow, with intricate descriptions and photos of the surroundings while dishing out hilarious observation jokes about people around him. He likes playing with your mind; switching from serious, to comedy and raunch all the time. The pace picks up, the drinking, coke and jokes reach lecherous levels, thongs fly and they end up with packs up women in some hilarious heavy sex scene. Sex in the clubs, in limos, in public, nothing conventional, always funny. Then when you least expect it something goes terribly wrong. I was laughing so hard my stomach hurt and had tears pouring down my cheeks; particularly the one with the Mother/daughter sex scene. He just shrugs things off and tears into another drunken debacle an hour later.

    Envy and shock and howling laughs are the reactions you feel. Great erotic photography also. I keep the book as a permanent fixture in my living room. It's the ultimate conversation piece; every guy and girl wants at it when they come over.

    Vivid storytelling. Wicked sense of humor

    Unpredictably funny stories told by a sexual explorer, testing his carnal and alcohol limits in a corrupt culture. A veteran of Moscow, Tate and his charismatic gangster friends provide an animated portrayal of life in the fast lane. Vivid storytelling, animated portrayals of hookups all day with Russian babes in tourist traps, seedy bars to upscale strip clubs. A well-written memoir that is a serious page turner, full of ripping observation humor and hilarious lines.

    Outstanding!

    Must own for fans of Hunter Thompson/Chelsea Handler writing and attitude, mixed with tons of laugh-out-loud funny lines. The characters in the book are rich, heavy drinking gangsters who pursue vice and life with a level of insanity that defies logic. This is one of the most original and radical comedies I've ever read, with ripping cynical humor as Tate documents his impulsive, reckless life on the edge as a modern barbarian.

    Hilarious

    Hilarious tale of debauchery by a photo-journalist in Moscow. Great shots around town, and some fantastic erotic photography. Heavy drinkers and non-stop one-liners and ripping sarcastic wit. His writing style is very original; his exaggerated descriptions of people and events left me with tears streaming down my cheeks. It's one of those books you'll tell every guy friend to run out and buy. A great writer and a fantastic storyteller, living an insane extreme lifestyle.
