PARKER CHANNELING CHANDLER
THE MAN WHO TURNED THE HARD BOILED PRIVATE EYE INTO A SENSITIVE MAN OF THE MODREN AGE, STEPS BACK A FEW DECADES AND CHANNELS THE KING OF ALL PRIVATE EYE FICTION, NONE OTHER THAN RAYMOND CHANDLER HIMSELF. AND DOES A DAMN FINE JOB OF IT TOO. THIS IS CLASSIC STUFF FULL OF TOUGH GUY TALK AND ATMOSPHERE, BROUGHT TO LIFE BY ELLIOT GOULD'S DEAD PAN PERFORMANCE AS THE ARCHETYPICAL MARLOW. THE SEEDY UNDERBELLY OF L.A. NEVER SOUNDED SO GOOD AS THIS FAST GEM BY ONE (OR IS THAT TWO) OF THE ICONS OF THE GENRE.

While this was only an average sequel, the major issue I've got with this book is the fact that I brought this thinking it was unabridged as advertised but turns out it is abridged.
