it was amazing
Read in June, 2008

Megan Abbott is one of the new hard-boiled or noir mystery writers, and her first novel is urban 1950s noir. Set in 1950s California, it's a story of lost innocence, shady pasts, love and jealousy, and dark underside of Hollywood. I liked it because it's from a female viewpoint (most noir novels have a Sam-Spade like main character). If you like your mysteries full of tough guys and hard fast dames, you'll like Die a Little.
