From Jeff Menapace, best-selling author of the Bad Games trilogy, comes Hair of the Bitch, a disturbing psychological thriller with tongue firmly planted in cheek...until it's ripped out.
Calvin Court is a massage therapist with a few secrets. He battles depression. He medicates with too much booze. And he's got the hots for one of his clients. She claims the feeling is mutual...until she frames Calvin for murder and blackmails him.
The price? Not much. Calvin just has to do her bidding in a black-market industry catering to the very rich and the oh-so-very disturbed.
Maybe he's just better off at the bar.
Jeff Menapace is the winner of the 2011 Red Adept Reviews Indie Award for horror.

What did you love best about Hair of the Bitch?

I loved that you literally were inside Calvin's head. He was constantly arguing with himself about choices he should or shouldn't make and I loved how you got to see how tortured he was. The ending was insane and I can't believe I didn't see it coming!

What did you like best about this story?

I can't say there was one thing in particular I liked about the story, as I liked the whole thing. The characters were awesome, especially Calvin. Angela got on my nerves a couple of times but the book wouldn't have been as good without her.

Have you listened to any of Jeff Hays’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've never listened to any of Jeff Hay's performances before.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! I needed to know how Calvin was going to justify his actions and what consequences would result from those actions.

Sick, sick, sick!!!!

What made the experience of listening to Hair of the Bitch the most enjoyable?

Great story line, enhanced by an amazing narrator. loved the "voice" he gave to each character, along with the sound effects used.

What did you like best about this story?

It was a dark and twisted tale. I liked the characters, even if they were all messed up in their own way.

What does Jeff Hays bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jeff may it feel like there was definite separation between each voice. I've listened to some audiobooks and couldn't tell who was "speaking" at times, not the case with this one.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A love story meets Hostel

Any additional comments?

This was an amazing book. Very sick and twisted - one of the darkest books i've read. I loved it!
