I kind of went back and forth on this one. Almost putting it down in a couple of spots. But, after I read that she also wrote Detour I plugged on. It turned out to be a pretty fair mystery once I figured out what was going on.

The problem is this book plunges you in like you already know what is happening. But you don't really find out what is happenening until it is resolved.

But there was an interesting cast of characters. Interesting trial. All around kind of bizarre. Kind of noir but not hard-

I've been looking for this book for a while, hoping that it might be a lost noir classic, but I was disappointed. The drunken playwright, Ty Leander, has lost his wife in a fire, or has he? He wants to die, or does he? The plot twists frantically:167 pages are just not enough for its ludicrous convolutions. The characters are uniformly unpleasant.
