Dangerous, blonde Gigolo, Paris Tongue uses his looks and insight into female sexuality to seduce women in the Secret Hour. This is the time when he takes them out of their lives and resurrects their sexual identity, like an erotic priest. He turns fantasy into reality and ushers in new ecstasies to their lives. Yet sees himself as a night visitor or ghost. The women are haunted by him, their lives forever changed by their encounters. Set in numerous European cities, this lyrical and deeply erotic novel captures the flavour of each city, each hotel, apartment, house, as exotic settings for Paris Tongue’s sexual adventures. But when he seduces the wife of a Mafia boss he finds himself hunted across Europe.
Praise for Noir City:
Richard Godwin's Noir City is a lyrical hybrid of noir,erotica,crime fiction and psychological drama worthy of Hitchcock or Argento. Godwin unflinchingly and masterfully digs beneath the surface of London, Paris, Rome, Madrid and Dusseldorf and the cities' recalcitrant denizens as he follows the trail of gigolo Paris Tongue. - Braz
With Noir City, Godwin proves that he is, and always be, the god of noir. As steamy as this novel is, there is always the foreshadowing of doom, and death. Outside a twilight-lit hotel lurks a spy. Beneath any bed might be a blade. - Cynthia Rosmus
