Cozy up to some fiendishly funny noir. What we have here are two detectives. Well, one "detective" is somewhat hairy. I don't know how much hair the other detective has. Interested? Well, go feed your dog and settle down for murder, mayhem, and...more murder!
Here's one quote about this book:
"Norbert Davis is an almost forgotten hardboiled mystery writer for the pulp magazines who flourished in the 1940s. Davis had an incredible talent for combining the tough, violent pulp mystery style originally created by Dashiell Hammett with the screwball comedy of a Preston Sturges movie. Tough bruisers and back-stabbing dames mix it up with assoerted nutcases, obnoxious kids, goofy waiters, and English mangling bus-drivers. (Davis's own world apparently wasn't so hilarious: he committed suicide in the summer of 1949.)"
I hope you enjoy it.
