CHANCE by Kem Nunn
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 18, 2014

"Lovers of Nunn's previous novels may discover in Chance a less than creditable antihero."

TIJUANA STRAITS by Kem Nunn
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Aug. 10, 2004

"Uneven: the violence is tainted by lurid excess, but the relationship between Sam and Magdalena is quite touching and not overdone."

POMONA QUEEN by Kem Nunn
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: April 2, 1992

"Much of the suspense ebbs away (despite a plot twist involving the killer's identity) as Nunn sifts through the layers of Dean's karma, and as Pomona's past rolls in like fog; still, Nunn remains an exciting writer, working close to the edge."
A vacuum-cleaner salesman becomes entangled in a homicidal biker's quest to avenge his brother's murder: Nunn's death-haunted third novel (after Tapping the Source, 1984; Unassigned Territory, 1987) is as much about southern California's spacious past as its druggy, tacky present.
