PI Thursday tangles with murder and a blackmail ring, but he is boxed in when he protects his client. Return characters Clapp and DA Benedict add to the plot. Interesting characters and a fast-paced plot. Highly recommended.
Cheeseball, hardboiled detective fiction. I happen to like the genre though, so it gets some points for that. The plot is not particularly clever, something about blackmail, no real surprises.
