A photographer is put into an action thriller mystery where he does an excellent job of unweaving a very complex crime conspiracy. This book has been out of print for a number of years by an author that was quite popular in his day. William Bayer writes very dark novels. This is true Noir at its very best. Let's not ruin it by saying much more than the story unfolds at a very fast pace and is highly interesting and compelling. It has a breath-taking ending. Finally, there is some nice inside information on professional photography art and technique that enriched the story.
Hard to say, all of the characters are richly drawn, but Kimberly stands out. She is not what she appears...let's leave it at that.
Yes. This compares very favorably. Dick Hill is one of the top three or so best narrators. His voice just pulls you along. You want to listen to him.
Yes, but I can't spoil it for you. Let's just say that futility comes to life.
