    " Early Westlake, kind of a departure, so speak: the story revolves around Ray Kelly,a citizen drawn by events into a life of crime, who discovers that he was in fact born into a criminal circle. The story is hard-boiled, Kelly not quite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 1/27/2011

    " A crime novel that includes a reference to a Fredric Brown short story. That is cool! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 7/1/2010

    " My first Westlake. It's obviously an early work, as there's a considerable plot lag in the middle, but the voice is enjoyably pulpy throughout. "

    " Good pulp fiction from the 60's. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 4/19/2010

    " Basic crime noir by one of the best. I enjoyed it, and I love the Hard Case Crime Series. Grim, gritty, and bleak, but it brought a smile to my face! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 F Tessa | 3/30/2010

    " 4.5 stars - Some of the characters from "The Cutie" reappear here. More double crosses and a wonderful anti-hero. Again, we're left with questions and wanting to know what comes next. Tight crime writing. "

    " Good noir fiction...where men drank like fish, talked with their fists and their guns, and women were either whores or housewives.

    Well presented audio version.

    It occurs to me...I have no idea what "361' means.... "
