really liked it
bookshelves: _north-america, 1900-1939, novels, _1001-before-you-die, crime-mystery, cities_los-angeles
Read in June, 2010

You know, the descriptions weren't anything exceptional, and the plot was simple with couple of twists to spice things up but I still enjoyed every second. The dialogue was funny, sharp and interesting. All things combined made me feel like I was sucked into an old black and white film noir, where whiskey is served at all hours of the day and women are fatal. Even though I mentioned the simplicity of the descriptions there was something that made 1930s Los Angeles come alive.
