Eric Jerome Dickey Blends Danger & Sensuality In His Latest Thriller

BAD MEN & WICKED WOMEN. Eric Jerome Dickey. Dutton.

Eric Jerome Dickey is the best thing going in fiction now in terms of writing stories that blend action with sensuality. Check out Bad Men & Wicked Women and you’ll immediately see why. Here, we come to intersect with hit-man Ken Swift and his daughter Margaux. Together, the two take the reader on a ride that shows the outlaw father trying to reconnect with the daughter he lost long ago. Through it all, Dickey’s penchant for creating fiction that resonates with the forbidden overtakes us – these elements of danger and lust dominating each and every passage. At its best moments, Bad Men & Wicked Women recalls bits and pieces of the famed HBO series The Sopranos  as we come to drench ourselves in the types of secrets many families harbor, but seldom share.
