He's a mob messenger boy and a sex maniac who hunts the ravenous and deadly Snow Leopard deep into the seedy groin of San Francisco's Tenderloin, where he has to choose: Sex or Death? Confessions of a Sex Maniac, Henry Miller Award Finalist, is old-school, hard-boiled, new millennium noir. If Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, James Ellroy had a three-way, this would be their bastard love child.
David Henry Sterry is a former rent boy and bestselling author of the memoir Chicken, about servicing rich Hollywood women for money, when he was seventeen.

Lyrical Noir Action
The entire book plays as 1 manic scene. you feel like you may have forgotten to breathe for an hour.
He obviously loves his work. He works with the mix of prose and verse well and makes the most of it. without him the adrenaline may have been lost
Yes - at an hour it is great for a single sitting.
More please David!
