Did not finish the book, moved too slowly. Interesting idea of having New York hustlers move to California and get hustled. ( )

Comic mystery by Craig RIce (finished by Ed McBain) about two street photographers who go to Hollywood, buy a house, find a body in it ( )

I read Craig Rice several years ago and really loved her Malone character. This book, I ordered because to my knowledge it's the only one co-written by a very early Ed McBain. He finished her manuscript after her untimely early death. I have always been a huge fan of Ed McBain. The cover jacket makes a big mystery out of who he is. We know, of course, he's Evan Hunter, author of The Blackboard Jungle.

Discontinued. I love Craig Rice's Malone series and Ed McBain, but I just couldn't get into this one. Back to the library it goes.
