Noir as it should be.

A classic tale in the style of the greats, Chandler and Hammett. While reading it you can almost see the black and white movie version in your mind. Better than pulp fiction but the author never sufferred the aclaim of the greats. Too bad, this is a top notch addition to the genre. Read it, listen to it, enjoy.

3.0

Guns, rubies, and a fixer inhabit this hard-boiled crime drama. Produced like a radio drama. Originally published in 1933.

Amazing story and acting

I felt as if I was a part of the action. Superb storyline. Great “hero”. A real throwback to the golden days of radio
