Overview

The Cheaters

Clint Mayer is a big man with big dreams. Or so he thinks. When Clint leaves Beaverkill for the rough and tumble dock town of Wilton, he hooks up with Charlie Fletcher, good time saloon owner and businessman. One of the businesses Charlie runs out of the bar involves a string of working girls, but he has to pay off Detective Red Brandon and it's wearing him down. He's had enough. Clint agrees to buy him out, but

then he meets Charlie's wife, Debbie. Clint thinks he can find a way to keep the bar, manage the girls and stay away from Brandon. He may even come away with Debbie. But Debbie has her own ideas—deadly ones!

Dial “M” for Man

Hob Sampson knows the blonde will be trouble—pure poison. It starts when she calls him up to fix her TV set. But she has a lot more on her mind than reception. Doris is all woman, and she makes sure that he knows it. She’s married to one of the richest men in town, Ferris Condon, a man with a grudge against Hob a mile wide. Hob knows his repair business will never get ahead while Ferris plots against him, but does he want to get involved with the man’s wife? Shouldn’t he be with Kathy? He’s comfortable with her. But Hob can’t resist Doris. And before he knows what’s good for him, he’s plotting with her to do something he knows is so wrong—and so necessary. Because Ferris Condon is all that stands between desire and Doris, and that’s a fatal place to be.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Orrie Hitt wrote about low-rent people in low-rent places... shabby streets, strip alleys, pleasure grounds, private clubs, passion pools, girls dormitories, dirt farms, nudist camps, and sexurbia counties." -Brian Ritt from his Introduction

"Both of these books show us the pulp fiction world of the 1950s and the early '60s. They are a nostalgia wallow and a look, not at the past, but the sexual myths and attitudes of the past...great fun to read."-Michael Scott Cain, Rambles

"Most of Orrie Hitt's characters are rotten to the core. Both the men and women are manipulators and schemers, miserable lonely drunks, scam artists, who you know will end up badly, heading toward the jaws of hell." -Dr. Raymond J. O'Brien, quoted in the Port Jervis Gazette
