McCoy, Horace: No Pockets In A Shroud, 27 May 2008
This title was released under a Creative Commons License, with additional acknowledgement placed at the end of the book. Book was acquired from Munseys, BUT REFORMATED BY ME TO MY SPECIFICATIONS.
Here is the the great Horace McCoy, a writer from the hardboiled school of fiction.
Here's a quote from the web:
"The flawed hero of No Pockets in a Shroud is Mike Dolan, a hardened, yet idealistic newspaper man with a burning desire to print the truth. But with corruption and scandal rife throughout the upper echelons of City life, Dolan finds that the newspaper owners have a vested interest in turning a blind eye to certain unsavoury activities. For when the biggest crooks in town are also the newspapers’ major source of advertising revenue, to expose them would be bad news for the balance sheets. Frustrated by this collective myopia, Dolan sets up his own magazine to expose the hypocrisy and lies which surround him. Dolan’s friends try to warn him with words, but his enemies - the society abortionist, the crooked baseball team, and a neo-fascist group of white supremacists - try lead pipes and strong arm tactics. But Mike Dolan won’t be deterred until he’s got a clean city and a clearer conscience - no matter what the cost to himself, or others. Dolan is an engrossing character who is one part idealist, one part fatalist, and one part unreliable flake. And for some reason these qualities prove irresistible to the women who throw themselves at his feet with enviable regularity."
I hope you enjoy it.
