Today’s Friday Fiction is another pulp mystery from the old days. I am a sucker for “mayhem and murder, liquor and lust”. Charming private-eye Pete Chambers is on the case of murder involving three ladies with secrets. Chambers unravels a complicated case involving a torch singer, a jewelry designer and a housewife. You know, the dames. For fans of the hardboiled detective story, this is a winner.
Since I hadn’t heard this author’s name before, I found this article about Henry Kane by Lawrence Block written a few years ago. It was an enjoyable piece of writing on this author, especially since there isn’t a whole lot written about Kane’s life.
