it was amazing

I am new to Charles Willeford and this my first of his books. I really liked this book. It was short and maybe almost more of a novella, but he packed lots of action and interest into it. Granted maybe his secondary characters could be more detailed, but I enjoyed them the way the were written. Sort of like "real life" people that you know, but realize later that you didn't know at all. :)

This story of an art critic trying to get ahead via what is probably the least prolific painter ever is a fun read. The main character is rather like someone out of a Dashiell Hammett book. He's not the most likable guy ever, but he certainly is human.
