A shape bends
over a drink at the end of the bar in Big Emma’s on
Oakland’s Jack London Square, looking like a bundle of black
clothes someone has left on the barstool. Full red lips that
match brightly dyed hair provide the only color, as if an
artist had begun to colorize her just before she walked out
of a frame in a 40’s noir movie. Her name is Susan, and she

husband, and to protect her from a man called Red. Wolf
takes her case, but Susan herself is then murdered and Red
attempts to kill Wolf…and the hunter becomes the hunted.

Wohlforth returns with The Pink Tarantula.
In this novel of nine closely related episodes, we join Crip
and Henrietta, as unlikely a detective duo as ever hit the
streets. Crip and Henrietta aren't a typical private eye
team. For starters Crip's real name is Tom Bateman. His
sometime sidekick Henrietta, with body piercings and spiked green hair,
calls him "Crip" because he rides a wheelchair.
Their cases aren't Middle America either. Henrietta grows
marijuana. She hangs with jailbirds. She brings Crip jobs
that smell of trouble - and weed - at first sniff.
Henrietta's idea of a favor? Well, a couple of crazed
fighting dogs need a home.
private eye business and California haven't gotten this kind
of a reworking since Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler
planted their gumshoes onto these mean streets.
Also available as a quality paperback at $12.95 from
PerfectCrime Books and
Kindle at $3.99.
