70s blurbwatch

Thanks to the marketing team at Belmont Books (in 1974) for this collection of excellent 1970s blurbs, found in the back of The Bowstring Murders.

DEATH TO THE MAFIA
No one can escape the fury of THE MARKSMAN’s blazing guns. With the cunning of a hungry cat, MAGELLAN tracked his prey to Vegas – and blasted them to bits!

– Kind of gives away the ending. Still, love the ‘hungry cat’ idea.

THE RUNAWAY GENERATION by Bibi Wein
The author ‘rapped’ with hundreds of teenagers from coast to coast. Here is the truth about what they feel about drugs, sex, music, education, religion, politics and parents.

GREATEST INTERNATIONAL HIJACK
A wild, sexy, modern novel. Conned into hijacking a plane, a square young man finds himself hip-deep in girls and gangsters.

– Story of my life…

TRASHING by Ann Fettamen
A sensational modern novel about the long-haired pot-smoking youth of today, TRASHING makes Harold Robbins read like Homer.

– D’oh.
