Marlowe, Dan: The Fatal Frails. v1. 10 July 07

Frails = female

Johnny Killain battles "mayhem, murder, [and] a covey of lovlies with larceny on the brain."

They don't tell stories like this anymore. Today they're "fabricated." Want the real stuff, the way it was written back in the 1950s? Then try Johnny Killain, a private dick who works at the Hotel Duarte.]

Dick = detective.

[Thought I'd say something bad there, didn't you? Well, I'm not Johnny Killain, I'm just a simple idiot sitting here at my computer typiing this intro.

I hope you enjoy it!

Don

P.S. - Now I'm going to try to find something to read.

Thanks Don. You have reminded me how much I like the Mickey Spillane types of detective stories. Only trick will be figuring out which ones I like, and which ones are too dark, or boring of course! (I don't personally care for the ones that are too filled with "serious evil" and downers. I like the ones with "fun" and humor in them!)

...somehow the world is weary and out of whack - even desperate - but these characters still manage to "survive." As Faulkner said, regarding the human race, we endure. There's almost something "brutish" about these books and these characters. Even the style is a kind of front that highlights the desperateness of their world. They will survive in any way that they are able.

The Latimer title - one that I'll work on after I've had my morning coffeee - is a book I think you'll really like. ALL of Jonathan Latimer is great fun: It's like a 1940s screwball comedy.

Thank you for the kind words.

Don
