I don't have a plot for this title, but I do have this information about Ed Lacy, from this website below, from which I quote the following two paragraphs:

http://www.mysteryfile.com/Lacy/Profile.html

"Famed New York Times critic Anthony Boucher consistently praised the Lacy projects. Welsh critic and writer John Williams also admired Room to Swing as “a fine, taut piece of crime writing.” Jon L. Breen selected the same title as one of the twenty-five best PI novels ever. Ed Lacy also has his detractors. Jacques Barzun brushed off Lacy who “wrote two dozen stories on the tough and sexy side, one of which – Room to Swing (1957) – received a prize.” Barzun neglects to mention the prize was an Edgar. Sad to report, Ed Lacy’s native New York City shows none of his books in its public library online catalog.

"Within the academy, opinions about Lacy seem mixed. Matthew J. Bruccoli has sought to reprint Lacy’s fiction for the New Black Mask series and cites The Best That Ever Did It as possibly his favorite read. Alan Wald ventures an opinion that such Lacy books as In Black and Whitey or Room to Swing might well inspire Ph.D. dissertations. At the same time, Ray B. Browne has written Lacy “is a run-of-the-plot writer with a talent for fast, racy hard-knuckled plots and for language that reads easily and is worth spending a small amount of money or time to obtain and an hour or two in the reading.” Ed Lacy’s papers (seven boxes of mostly galleys and manuscripts) are housed at Boston University’s Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center."


If you enjoy this title, I have 13 additional Ed Lacy titles available here on MobileRead, including the one discussed above.

Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.

I hope you enjoy it.
