A Danny Fontaine Double-Shot:


As Bad As I Am and When She Was Bad


William Ard


Danny Fontaine joins Timothy Dane and Lou Largo as irresistible hunks who have to fend off every woman they meet, each being more beautiful than the last. And would we want our 1950s bad-boy crime fighters any other way? In these two novels from 1959-1960, as Francis M. Nevins describes in his insightful introduction, Danny manages to romance each woman in turn, despite a court order that prohibits him from interacting with women in any way -- for a year!

Timothy Dane is featured in the first Ramble House double from William Ard: Perfect .38, and Lou Largo is found in Calling Lou Largo, recently released. More doubles from the pen of William Ard are in the works.
