Bard Constantineabout this book: What is The Most Dangerous Dame? Only the continuing misadventures of Mick Trubble—private eye of the future. In this sequel to the debut novel New Haven Blues, Mick finds himself in the cross-hairs of a shadow antagonist with a deadly and personal vendetta against him and anyone he's involved with. Mick can remember everything except his past, but it looks like his past has come back to haunt him with a vengeance.
In the dystopian city of New Haven, people with no one else to turn to give the Troubleshooter a call. But who does Mick Trubble call when he's at the end of his rope?
The concept of The Troubleshooter is retro-futurism, or dystopian noir as coined by the author, Bard Constantine. It's taking the grit, slang, vibe and look of the 30s pulp and hardboiled detective stories and dropping all of that in a Blade Runner styled future. So you get your jazz and bourbon, trench coats and fedoras, dames and gangsters along with your flying cars, synthetic humanoids, and towering cities protected by invisible shielding.
