"With Naughty, Monte Schulz infuses old school noir with the depth and complexity of the best historical fiction — it’s what James M. Cain would’ve done with The Postman Always Rings Twice had he taken himself more seriously. Following his ill-fated lovers Joe and Ida down a rabbit hole teeming with greed, lust and ultimately, murder, readers will find themselves transported in time to late ’50s California — where an ambitious looker like Ida could either get rich, or kill a few suckers like Joe trying.” – Gar Haywood, author, Hollywood Cemetery Road

Naughty is a book in the fine tradition of James M. Cain. Set in 1950s California, this compelling crime novel has all the noir elements: hard-boiled cops, treacherous women, fall guys, drifters, grifters, and schemers. And, of course, murder. Monte Schultz has written a book with memorable characters, atmospheric settings, and a hard-charging plot that will keep readers turning the pages.” – Miles Corwin, author, Kind of Blue
