Love Stories Are Too Violent for Me by Will Viharo

Back in print after two decades, this modern, ironic detective story features iconic private eye Vic Valentine, who is hired by a hard-drinking professional baseball player to find a vanished lover. From there, a troubling journey begins, as the hunt leads Valentine down a twisting trail of decadence and danger that eventually takes him to the most unexpected place—the private eye's own past. This is pulp in the classic sense: the story of a lonesome outsider wrestling with existence and sucked into a whirlpool of lust, passion, and desperation, all served hot, fast, and straight out of the emotionally gory grindhouse called life.

I've thoroughly enjoyed every Vic Valentine novel I've read, so I was very happy when this one became available.  Vic is completely relatable as a character, yet the story is exciting and escapist.  The best of both worlds!  Add in the other characters, atmospheric settings and situations and you have one great read!  I can't wait to see it on the big screen!
