cooper kept girl

Through December 25, you can subscribe to the first novel by HiLobrow friend Kim Cooper: The Kept Girl, a detective novel starring Raymond Chandler. It’s inspired by a sensational real-life Los Angeles cult murder spree which exploded into the public consciousness when fraud charges were filed against the cult’s leaders in 1929.

Subscribers will be among the first to read The Kept Girl, they’ll be acknowledged in the book, and their copy will come enclosed in a limited edition decorative case. Books will ship in early 2014.
