Hard Case Crime

Hard Case Crime is a book club that drops a new pulp fiction crime novel on my doorstep each month. I’ve yet to be disappointed in a book, and I look forward to each month’s newest offering.

Here is a list of the book by spine number. As with my lists on Incoherent Thoughts, this is more for me. The ones I own or have on order are in bold. The ones that I wrote a little blurb about on this blog are linked.
