|About the Book|
I downloaded this randomly after searching for some pulp fiction titles after seeing some great art on the pulpcovers.com site and then searching for electronic versions.Yes, the cover and title can invoke some negative aspects of the era, but that aside I thought the story and story telling were classic detective noir. Really tight writing at times, not terse- but tight. I had to look up Hadley Chase- I didnt know he was so prolific. Id definitely look for more titles from him.And if I were a writer Id spend some time studying the economy of the language in this story.
