Another in an excellent series of short-ish, punchy novels. Mr Pronzini knows how to tell a story with short sentences, noirish similes and descriptions and a well-meaning but vulnerable central character. Women are more weakly portrayed than men, as so often in noir being mostly stereo-type victim or femme fatale etc, and there is the added bonus of the audio books of sounding as though they are addicted to helium - Mr Hamilton also struggles with the Chinese accents a little in this particular novel, though in general his reading is spot on. Very enjoyable, and thankfully in today's fashion for weighty tomes, not too long.
