'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore Leonard Russell Haxby is a ruthless used-car salesman obsessed with manipulating and cavorting with married women. In this classic or hard-boiled fiction, Willeford crafts a wry, sardonic tale of hypocrisy, intrigue and lust set in San Francisco in the early fifties, in which every sentence masks innuendo and every detail hides a clue.

This Ace-Double combines two of Willeford's classics of hard-boiled fiction into one volume. 'Hight Priest of California' recounts the story of Russell Haxby, a ruthless used car saleman obsessed with manipulating and cavorting with married women. A wry, sardonic tale of lust, hypocrisy and intrigue, it deserves its reputation as one of the ballsiest hard-boiled tales ever written. 'Wild Wives' is equally as amoral, sexy and brutal. A tale of deception featuring the crooked detective Jacob Blake, it's packed with intrigue, deceit and multiple murders.

Charles Willeford was a child of the Depression era, one of thousands who drifted across the Dust Bowl of America riding the freight trains. That experience, combined with twenty years spent in and out of the armed forces, and the most colourful of lives afterwards, fuelled his deeply authentic hard-boiled prose. High Priest of California is his first novel, and, like Pick-Up and Wild Wives, it is not pulp fiction, but almost satirises that genre. The humour is raunchy and bad-tempered, but the writing is never pretentious. The stories are not lurid; rather, skilfully crafted tales of men and women responding to their individual circumstances, at times purely for their own gain, at others driven by sheer force of hardship.
