    1. I'm a sucker for these books from the 50's and 60's. Prather does his best to be a poor mans Chandler. The wise cracking PI the, gorgeous dames, the predictable bad guys. But you just gotta love it. This book was published in 1951 that's 64 years ago, grab the Luckies and let's go light up. Reading for fun !

    2. Γοητευτικός πρώην πεζοναύτης και νυν ιδιωτικός ντετέκτιβ (ο Σελ Σκοτ) μπλέκει από παρεξήγηση σε πόλεμο δύο αντίπαλων συμμοριών αλλά και σε ερωτικό τρίγωνο γκάγκστερ-κας γκάγκστερ-γκόμενας γκάγκστερ. Σκοτώνει αρκετούς, συλλαμβάνει μερικούς και τον ερωτεύονται δυο γκομενά [...]

    3. I've enjoyed the seven or so Shell Scott books I've read and this is one of the better tales. There are a lot of layers to this tale and Scott is written in to straighten out more than what appears. I especially liked the plotting of the story and how each piece is presented and then solved.

    4. Fawcett Gold Medal books began publisihing paperback originals in 1950. Mostly great hardboiled detective Novels, spy novels, and westerns in the pulp tradition. When I was a kid in the sixties, I read my share of them and I'm catching up now in my old age. The books were usually under 200 pages and were written by such greats as Donald Hamilton (Matt Helm Spy novels and westerns), Louis L'Amour, John D MacDonald (Travis McGee), Richard Matheson, and Richard S Prather who wrote about the white h [...]

    5. Raymond Chandler once said about his writing process: "When in doubt, have a man come through the door with a gun in his hand". He was probably being flip when he said that, but it might have also been true. It's not a bad hook, though, as far as battling through writer's block (unless you happen to be writing a cook book). Such a thing happens at the end of one of the chapters in this book. And then Shell Scott spends the next four chapters being held captive by a bunch of hoodlums. Four chapte [...]
