Hard Case Crime, the noir imprint from Titan Comics, has announced another title about murder and corruption in America. But this is one that sidesteps the fedoras, the tommy guns, and the masculine heroes.

Normandy Gold, written by Megan Abbott and Alison Gaylin, with art by Steve Scott, tells the story of a female sheriff who comes to Washington DC to investigate her sister’s murder in the 1970s. Naturally the story gets wrapped up in the unfortunate intersection of sex work and politics.

Normandy, the sheriff in question, seems like a competent and formidable figure, so it should be entertaining to watch her refuse to take any crap in the face of intimidation and possible national scandal.

CONTENT WARNING: The final page of this preview ends with a moment of sexualized violence that may be unsettling to some readers.

Here’s the official word from Titan Comics:

Sex, violence and corruption collide in NORMANDY GOLD, a gritty thriller set in 1970s Washington D.C., written by acclaimed author Megan Abbott (You Will Know Me, TV writer on HBO’s The Deuce), and bestselling crime novelist Alison Gaylin (What Remains Of Me), with art by industry legend Steve Scott (TriggermanJLA).

When her younger sister is found murdered in a D.C. hotel, relentless Sheriff Normandy Gold dives headfirst into the seedy world of prostitution and politics, soon discovering a twisted conspiracy that could lead right to the White House.
