I really like this book and plan to read the whole series, but it won't be for everyone. This book was written in the late 50's.
This is a real hardboiled detective story. The dialogs was fun. Filled with broads, tomatoes and other such slang of the time.
At first I was not sure if this book was a satire or spoof on detective stories, but the plot became very engrossing. Shell Scott is marvelous hero.
