Overview

When two friends discover old video footage of an unknown saloon singer, they try to pass it off as bootlegs of a long-lost cabaret legend. But their prank backfires when the viral sensation takes on a vivid--and lethal--life of its own…and as its fame increases, so does the body count. Scaldingly funny, brutally unsentimental, nerve-shreddingly suspenseful--and featuring a mid-story switcheroo on par with Hitchcock’s "Psycho"--THE SUGARMAN BOOTLEGS reads like the bastard child of "All About Eve" and "Frankenstein". It’s a highly addictive cross-cultural mash-up as only Robert Rodi (FAG HAG, KEPT BOY) could do it. ~ Hommages à Alfred is a series of novels inspired by the films of Alfred Hitchcock, incorporating mystery, menace, murder, and mordant wit.
"A take no prisoners tale of the dark side of fame--with recognizably over-the-top characters and an 'oh no she didn't' twist. Will keep you reading--and guessing--until the very last page." - Cynthia Ashworth, author of HER LATEST SUPPORTING ROLE

Robert Rodi is back with his first new fiction in years! I loved this book because there is something unexpected at every turn. The characters are memorable and unique -- just like Rodi's earlier work (Fag Hag, Drag Queen, etc.). Rodi totally subverts the usual novel with extreme plot twists -- pitting best friends against one another in a hilarious duel scene. There's also a clever subplot that showcases Rodi's encyclopedic knowledge of the American jazz scene. Download and read this book immediately!
