The secret lives of the topless pulp fiction reading society

Hard Case Crime head into erotic territory for their new novel release, The Secret Lives of Married Women and editor, Charles Ardai is delighted that the book will feature on the cover of next week's New York Times Book Review.

Calling the book a stunning comeback for author, Elissa Wald Mr Ardai wrote in a trade press release:

The book hits stores on October 8, just two days after the Times review comes out, and it's a terrific one -- one of the best-written books we've ever had the privilege to publish and one that'll stay with you a long time after you turn the final page.  It's about two sisters whose lives are transformed by moments of violence, and who discover secrets about themselves that trouble and disturb them...but also tempt them...
And like Elissa Wald's previous books (HOLDING FIRE and the erotic cult classic MEETING THE MASTER) it is about the psychology and sexuality of submission, a topic she writes about with passion, clarity, and deep conviction. It's really quite breathtaking.  Daniel Bergner, author of the recent bestseller WHAT DO WOMEN WANT?, writes, "THE SECRET LIVES OF MARRIED WOMEN pulls back the veil.  It's a page-turner that's propelled forward -- relentlessly -- by a search for truth about desire.  Elissa Wald's unflinching vision makes for addictive reading."  This is Elissa's first new book in 12 years, and it's a stunning comeback.

The Topless Pulp Fiction Society, yes there is such an organisation, are no doubt eager to get their hands on this book.

And just because the Archive can't get enough of drawn and painted cover artwork we present some pictures of just a selection of the stunning cover artwork that Hard Case Crime are famous for.
