Rather than the traditional hellfire and brimstone, souls are now tortured Author: Emily Wenstrom.

A Hell of a Woman is another typical twisted crime novel from the one of those rare authors who turns pulp fiction into literary magic. Although for me not as powerful or spellbinding as The Killer Inside Me, this novel still manages to shock and impress like much of Jim Thompson’s dark crime work.4/4(40).

A Hell of a Woman is a tale very nearly from the James M. Cain mold. Man meets woman, bumps off someone in order to be with her, then quickly descends into madness.

Frank Dillon coming unglued is a testament to Jim Thompson's skill as a writer. As things start coming unraveled, Frank's cracking is very believable.4/5. Megan Abbott is the Edgar Award-winning author of Die a Little, The Song Is You, and Queenpin.

She also edited Busted Flush Press' female noir anthology, A Hell of a Woman. Her Damn Near Dead (Busted Flush Press) short story, "Policy," was the basis for her Edgar-winning novel, Queenpin.

She has a Ph.D. in English and American literature.5/5(5). A collection of twenty-five original female noir stories by some of todays top crime writers, including Vicki Hendricks, Sara Gran, Christa Faust, Naomi Hirahara, Charlie Huston, and more.

Includes a special fifty-page appendix of essays on female noir pioneers/5. A Hell of a Woman is wicked, wicked, wicked. Published by User, 19 years ago. This novel deserves to be known as one of Thompson's best.

Dolly Dillon may not appear to be as menacing as Lou Ford, but he is, if possible, more insane.5/5(5). Home» Books» Other Writing Projects» A Hell of a Woman. A Hell of a Woman. Where To Buy; Book Details Print Book Details and Synopsis.

“A fascinating view of an often misunderstood population of America and an uplifting ode to the strong women at its core, whose unique stories and sacrifices inspire a book to be celebrated!” —Cea Sunrise Person, author of North of Normal/5().

below from the book: "A Divine Revelation of Hell", by Mary K. Baxter Mary K. Baxter said that in the Lord Jesus appeared to her and gave her a tour of both Heaven and Hell.

The Lord further directed that Mary write about what she saw and felt in a book so that others may know that Heaven and Hell are real places. A Hell of a Woman is another typical twisted crime novel from the one of those rare authors who turns pulp fiction into literary magic.

Although for me not as powerful or spellbinding as The Killer Inside Me, this novel still manages to shock and impress like much of Jim Thompson’s dark crime work/5(46). His best-regarded works include The Killer Inside Me, Savage Night, A Hell of a Woman and Pop.

In these works, Thompson turned the derided crime genre into literature and art, featuring unreliable narrators, odd structure, and the quasi-surrealistic inner narratives of the last thoughts of his dying or dead : SeptemAnadarko.

" A Hell of a Woman is not only an exceptionally entertaining anthology, it's an invaluable resource that will be cherished by aficionados of the genre."--Paul Goat Allen, Chicago Tribune An original anthology.5/5(2).
