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.
