'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore Leonard Amoral, sexy and brutal, Wild Wives was written in a sleazy San Francisco hotel in the early 1950s while Willeford was on leave from the army. This tale of deception features crooked detective Jacob C. Blake and his nemesis: a beautiful, insane young woman who is the wife of a socially prominent San Francisco architect. Blake becomes entangled in a web of deceit, intrigue and multiple murders in this exciting period tale. 'Mr Willeford never puts a foot wrong, and this is truly an entertainment to relish' New Yorker

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.
