Pressestimmen

'I never miss a book by Vicki Hendricks. No one on the current scene is writing supercharged, erotic, real noir novels like these. Think Jack London, James M.Cain, and Colette. Sky Blues is another Hendricks triumph.' George P.Pelecanos; 'No one writes better about white trash gone bad than Hendricks' Guardian -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

Dark murder arises out of a torrid love affair in the dangerous world of sky-diving. Exotic animal vet Destiny Donne is introduced to the sport by Tom Jenks and quickly becomes enmeshed in his world of danger, adrenaline and sex. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Adrenaline Adventure 14. Mai 2013
Von A. Lanneau - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An adrenaline ride from start to finish. A beautiful, too-good-to-be-true man paired with a beautiful animal-loving vet who learns to skydive with him. The sky diving descriptions make you feel as though you are in free fall and flying with them. The descriptions of Florida heat and lush vegetation will resonate with Southerners and Snowbirds alike.

The plot sails along with plenty of twists and turns. Everything about the story is so good that I almost forgot to mention the excellent sex scenes! As an avid and discriminating reader, I highly recommend this book!!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun read 10. Mai 2013
Von Margaret - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The plot was a bit predictable, but the sky-diving information was interesting and fun to read about. I liked the main character, but thought it took her quite awhile to figure out what was going on.

A bit tedious, and unnecessarily graphic.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Poetry of Noir 16. März 2016
Von Dave Wilde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Vicki Hendricks writes noir masterpieces that are unlike anything else in the genre. Hendricks invokes the classic motif of the femme fatale with bewitching charms who makes men weak-kneed and helpless to resist even in the face of all logic. Of course, when Hendricks tells such stories, the main character who is bedazzled into a world of sin is a woman with insatiable sexual appetites that cloud her reason and independence.

Like in her book Iguana Love, this story of obsession and helpless attraction takes place in hot, steamy Florida, although where the sport involved in Iguana Love is scuba diving, here it's skydiving and lion keeping.

The magic of this story is that it's told in a slow subtle spellbound way. It's not a wham-bam shoot-em-up action story, but it has a relentless pace and it's filled with hints of something off and something wicked even as much of the beginning focused on Destiny's loneliness and succumbing to Tom's charms. Maybe it is partly steamy Harlequin, but that's really just a buildup for Destiny's moral and emotional descent. Thematically, this is noir and it's really the poetry of noir, conveying emotionally what it needs to.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A beastly good mystery ! Full of sex and tension! 16. April 2002
Von Cborges - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of Hendricks' best! All her classic elements are there---the bastard--the lust-filled heroine desperate for orgasm--the mystery--but what a romp this is! And, plot-wise it is a finely wrought thriller. After a seductive beginnning musky with desire and replete with animal feces and blood, she takes you on a high. She gets you wet with anticipation and she doesn't let you down until she wants to.
When Des, the vet, meets Tom (another of Hendricks' most deliciously smarmey but sexy bastards) she pulls the ripcord of her desire and lets loose with an adventure you're not soon to forget. Tom's a sky diving instructor who is as smooth in his dives into bed as he is in the air. He's one of those guys who has to manipulate everything he puts his sweaty hands on, and he wants to manipulate Des, but she bests him in this one.
The best part of this book is the evolution of Hendricks' characters. Always a master at noir, she jumps up a level here and creates a story any woman...can enjoy. One any any man with a desire for conquest can leap into...
Des, tensioned between her desire for the animal side of her nature and her struggle for spiritual purity, draws us deeply into her free-fall into hell. And, Tom gets his come-uppence in way that is both delicious and insidious. No one can create a more sexy story than Hendricks, but this book transcends mere noir, it's also a good mystery with very human and three dimensional characters.
Blue skies--freedom and spiritual purity--versus the earth below with its dark sex-jungle, its predatory lions and heavy footed hippos... what a fantastic metaphor for the inner wars we all wage against our primitive natures and something more... The settings in this novel drive the plot and make the characters soar.
The whole time I was reading this book, I keep thinking--movie! Movie! Of all of Hendricks' great adventures into the steamy and dark side of life, this one has the best potential to become a great movie...
