So, The Tuesday Blade had a good plot line. I liked how Gloria's past influenced and I loved the character of Sergeant DeMario.

But there were some stuff that I did not like at all too. First, the writing style is pretty confusing most of the time. There was too much dialogue with not enough description. Sometimes it was like reading a character's lines in a play.

Also, the ending seemed to lack something. There was no climatic moment in any part of the book and the end of the book just sort of petered out.

I wish there had been more DeMario in the story and that there'd been more of a connection between characters and reader. The only way I can briefly describe is that it was an okay book but it lacked that 'boom!'

Jil Ross Now mind you I read this book in 1978, I was 14. I'd completed Are You There God, It's Me, Margeret and wanted to read something mature. I grew up in a very Catholic household and was totally intrigued with this book; the NY scene, prostitution... Fascinated about it all. I didn't know then how to judge books on the same depth that I do now. But I did enjoy the book and it was a memorable read.
