my dad was into them. detective novels was his favourite mindless reading. he had me reading robert b parker too.
He's really going for it in this one. I'm only about fifty pages in and we've already had Dave Klein throwing someone out of a window, admitting to fancying and almost sleeping with his sister, setting up and beating a prospective DA and someone drugging and disemboweling a couple of dogs.Might jump straight into White Jazz after finishing this one.
You might recognise the theme tune, more or less the only consistent element through repeated reimagings across different formats... was replaced on the radio by the archers apparently
What! That simply cannot be true.Steve Bruce, the football manager, has written some crime novels.
No, but I have read about them, meant to check em out.has anyone (except me) read the Nero Wolf novels? I've read all of them. he's grotesquely fat. so fat he can't move so he has a handsome boy genius with a photographic memory to do all the leg work. so it's like splitting a detective into two, one gets into fights, gets entangled with various femme fatales, the other one solves the case by using mental genius, fingers to temples, eyes closed, cheeks puffed out.... im a big fan
side note there is only 1 arcade left in soho and last time i went in there there were no pinball tables at all.
