If you're looking for a book that highlights every convention of noir fiction, this is a great book. If you're looking for a book that has a clear, follow-able plot, this may not be it. Every bit of exposed thigh, pulled down hat brim, stormy night and echoing gunfire is first rate, but even with a Tolstoy novel-worthy flow chart, I'm not 100% sure what happened.
