it was ok
bookshelves: detective-mystery
Read in May, 2007


For somebody who loved "The Last Good Kiss," I found this a disappointing novel--rambling, discursive and out of control. Because Crumley is still a helluva writer, many of the set-pieces--like the marvelous beginning--are wonderful. But, all taken together, they do not add up to a book.

Simon TLGK was one of those novels that had no business being as good as they were, I can imagine it'd be a tough act to follow.

I can't help thinking that continual, unmitigated liquor consumption had something to do with his decline.
