"Noir virtuoso Matt Phillips' A Good Rush Of Blood is as hot as a Palm Springs sunburn, strong as a kamikaze shot, and always alive to the hard sweetness of destinies unfolding on the edges. His places pulse. His people breathe and kiss and ache. His writing is the kind of poetry that kicks you in the head. Rough, dangerous, sexy and sweet, A Good Rush Of Blood stuns and exhilarates."

- Jo Perry, author of Pure and the Charlie & Rose Investigate series

"Matt Phillips writes a seedy mystery full of unique characters who expose the unwashed underarm of the pristine Palm Springs. Phillips drags his heroine through the dirt and grime as she searches for the truth regardless of the consequences. You don't want to miss this latest noir installment."

- Travis Richardson, Derringer Award winner and author of Bloodshot and Bruised

"Creeley Nash is a bad girl, a drug runner who can take care of herself, and when she can't, her boss, Animal, takes care of it. Creeley isn't dangerous, though, until in the midst of a drug run she discovers her mom, Blossom, (a whore), is doing life for murder. A murder Creeley soon believes that Blossom didn't commit. With her new friends Amber and Kimmie, Creeley goes on a hell-blazing path toward justice, unsure if she'll ever get there. This, the latest page-turner by Matt Phillips, is a great crime novel with an evil conclusion. Or two."

- Rob Pierce, author Snake Slayer and the Uncle Dust Trilogy

"A Good Rush of Blood confirms Matt Phillips' status as one of the finest practitioners of noir fiction writing today. Phillips provides an engrossing mystery populated by grime-coated, three-dimensional human beings. The prose is terse, to the point. No words wasted. The reader's eyes glide across the page, eager to reach the next shocking revelation. This is noir the way the Good Lord intended-simultaneously brisk and complex. A thrill ride for all fans of the genre."

- Alec Cizak, author of Nobody's Coming Home
