Read from October 10 to 11, 2011

This was a fun little book, fast-paced, entertaining, with lots of amusing/foul-mouthed writing in the more modern hard-boiled style (referring to a twenty-something girl as "AIDS-bait", talking about how there's nothing wrong with wanting to fuck your dad, etc).
If there was to be one complaint with the book, it would be that the surprise ending (I won't give it away, but I would bet ten to one, you will see it coming a mile away) is not a surprise. Also, the gunfight that occurs right before the ending is a little bit silly. I mean, Quarry is good and all, but I'm not sure that good.
