hardboiled throw back to Dashiel Hammet
I enjoy this genere so I liked this book, I think the narrator could have done the surrounding characters voices a bit better but in any event it made my commute breeze by a bit quicker. Give it a try

EVEN IS RIGHT, TOO DAMN EVEN!
The book has a certain "Bondian" attitude at times, cartoonish escapes and more evil than evil villains, and dead folks littering the playing field, but it takes a tack and stays there. Should have been called "Even Keel". Then he kills off the only likable player of the lot, Tanya (sp).
Vignette after vignette with little or no suspense. No crescendo building or mystery lurking. David is mean-spirited and soulless enough but even the remotest and detached of the double-oughts has a little sex along the way. Once they broke out the formaldehyde the imagery had nowhere to go but down.
