'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore Leonard

Amoral, sexy and brutal, Wild Wives was written in a sleazy San Francisco hotel in the early 1950s while Willeford was on leave from the army. This tale of deception features crooked detective Jacob C. Blake and his nemesis: a beautiful, insane young woman who is the wife of a socially prominent San Francisco architect.

Blake becomes entangled in a web of deceit, intrigue and multiple murders in this exciting period tale.

'Mr Willeford never puts a foot wrong, and this is truly an entertainment to relish' New Yorker
