Shelfari edited the description of Pins Sunday, September 30, 2012.
Telemarketing is a drag, and serving jobs are exhausting. Luckily, strip clubs are always looking for new blood. Eva "Birdie" Finch is fed up with the slim pickings in local employment, and the gentlemen's club/bowling alley called Pins seems to be the only option left. But learning how to strip for strangers isn't Birdie's only obstacle, especially when fellow dancers start turning up dead. From Jessica McHugh, author of the steampunk adventure The Sky: The World and the bestselling psychological thriller Rabbits in the Garden, PINS is a post-modern coming of age thriller certain to titillate as much as terrify with a candid look at a dancer trying to find herself on a blood-drenched stage. ... fans of horror, pulp, hard crime, depictions of very beautiful young women, hot dialogue and fast, pulpy tales won’t be disappointed!” - Mark Barry, Green Wizard Publishing, UK “PINS is a great novel, well written, well paced and absorbing. The writing is very visual and descriptive leaving no confusion as to what is happening…. I could almost smell the blood at times! I loved Birdie’s voice, her sarcasm and humour made her character real and I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a gritty read.” - Lindsay and Jane’s Views and Reviews “The dialogue crackles and the drug use is plentiful but this isn't a whitewashed fairy tale, it's a gritty story of a young woman seeking peace. PINS works equally as a coming of age, finding your way novel and as a horror. Yes it is that good.” - Jason Downes, author of Pony Fleming and The Barn “McHugh wonderfully balances good writing with humor and an easy-to-read rhythm that keeps her audience turning pages until the sun is up.” - Kira McFadden, Novel Publicity
