A Taste of Delicious

Somehow Nice Girl and Noir sounded oxymoronic to me, me who brought myself up on Spillane, Hammett and Chandler but I bought it anyway and left it on the digital shelf while I followed Gibbon, Beard and the Great Courses across the ancient world. Then yesterday I opened this up and was delighted to find a calculating mind weaving words and crisp phrases across several excellent and short stories. Yes, I listened to the entire book of stories in a day. And yes, they are noir and they left me wanting more of Libby Fischer Hellmann... more, Staccato
