McPartland, John: The Face Of Evil. v1. 11 July 07
This title was released under a Creative Commons License with a link to the book here. Book was acquired from Munseys, BUT REFORMATED BY ME TO MY SPECIFICATIONS.
Here's another noir paperback thriller from the 1950s, by John McPartland.
This is one writer that I have yet to read, but here's some information about him:
"McPartland was one of the Gold Medal blue-collar writers; had served in Korea; obviously knew the black-market milieu of that war; came back and wrote raw, rugged, at times very powerful novels; obviously drank, lived with a mistress and illegitimate kids before it was OK to do so; and died young of a heart attack. He was the kind of person who knew what it meant to be in trouble with the law, doing dumb impetuous things, getting into fights.
"What comes across again and again in his novels is his understanding of power, the hard masculine will to dominate others, break them, destroy them. His bad guys are some of the most frightening in thriller fiction: Southern rednecks, syndicate “troopers,” the Mob. His fights are fights in which the loser can get hurt very badly."
I hope you enjoy it. I have one more McPartland to work on.
