Here's another noir pulp mystery from the days when fists were hard, but guns were harder...
A crook asks him to plot a robbery that will be absolutely perfect....
"Lionel Olay, a West Coast author, journalist and editor whose hard-driven newsman status was such an inspiration to the late great Hunter Thompson, wrote a pair of paperback originals in the late '50s. The first was a tale about an idealistic reporter who spurns the depredations of Hollywood in favor of a more honest life. This one relies more on Olay's keen eye and vision to present a hard-boiled California caper worthy of pulp legend." [emphasis mine.]
Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.
