I just read the first three very enjoyable chapters of Boston Blackie, and they would do well as a stand-alone short story, so I imagine the remaining chapters follow the same pattern. I've put it aside again temporarily, as the fiction in current rotation with my other reading is It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis. Boston Blackie will be next, unless the voting occurs before I finish the Lewis novel. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of BB. Those tales are a gas.
For the record, the first three chapters take place during his days on the other side of the law when he was a jewel thief with a heart of gold.
