Lansdale hit the mark precisely. Mr. Duane S. also captured the right noir feel of a man in trouble and running out of options. Other stories were decent but often lacked the right noir feel. We are talking femme fatales, crooked cops, a broken political machine, and social upheaval that colors the narrative. So for the price and experience, this was a winner even though some stories weren't 100%. Do I want to go on now and read my James m. Cain? You bet!
