This book represents my introduction to Richard Prather's work and what an introduction. These three short pieces are among the best classic noir I have read. Not only is his writing crisp but his tongue- in- cheek descriptions are amazing. The quality of his writing is among the best ever. Two of these stories are about Shell Scott, Prather's version of Phillip Marlowe, a tough talking tough fighting private eye who tangles with the racket boys and protects damsels in distress. Nonstop
action. I would give this many more stars if I could.
