If pulp teaches anything, it’s don’t mess around with a carny’s woman. If he can’t throw knives and spit fire himself, you can bet he’s got friends who can. Road Show, by German author John Haase, doesn’t get quite as eye-for-an-eye as we’d like considering the setting, but it’s a satisfying piece of pulp fiction from a well-regarded novelist whose later work became movie vehicles for the likes of Julie Christie and James Stewart. As a bonus you get a fantastic cover image from pulp stalwart Barye Phillips. We'll get to Phillips again a bit later. And remember everyone, no means no.
