Coleman, Reed Farrel – 1st book, 1st of series
Would-be writer Dylan Klein is closing up the bar owned by his friend, ex-Detective Johnny MacClough, when a woman comes in, asks for his friend, drops a diamond necklace and wanders back out into the snow. Dylan follows her, and finds her murdered with a canary stuffed in her mouth.

I love his style which has a bit of the classic 50’s tone.

FIRST LINES: The new TV talked to no one but me. Its virginal speakers babble to an empty bar, a rapidly decomposing dartboard and pay-for-pool table at which no one was paying and no one was playing.

As RFC is one of my favorites these days it was interesting to go back to an early work ('93). The story/plot was good, as is the theme (the meaning of friendship). The writing is not as well developed as later work. The germ of the Moe Prager character origin can be glimpsed along w/ RFC's knowledge and love for NYC (especially Brooklyn).

Early Coleman that is not as strong as the Moe Prager books but still enjoyable...
