    1. I thought I already reviewed this book. High Sierra is a very impressive book, and a rare contribution from W. R. Burnett. The book is a semi-nostalgic look at the aging gangster. Roy Earle, "the last of the Dillinger gang," is released from prison through some political favors; but there's a catch. Roy is contracted for one last job (this was written well before such a plot became worn to death in Hollywood). The job, though, is in a ritzy town near the Sierra Nevada. Along to help are a couple [...]


    2. Part crime novel, part character study of a gangster in winter. The wooden dialogue is predictably quaint. The rambling plot feels surprisingly realistic. The aging gangster is unexpectedly affecting. All this, and a beautiful young blonde with a clubfoot. Calling Jim Thompson. . . .



    3. Τέταρτο βιβλίο του Μπερνέτ που διαβάζω, ένα κλασικό αν και όχι τόσο πολυδιαβασμένο νουάρ μυθιστόρημα που έγινε μεγάλη κινηματογραφική επιτυχία, όπως και άλλα βιβλία του συγγραφέα. Ο Μπερνέτ δεν είναι τόσο γνωστός όσο άλλοι συγγραφείς του είδους (όπως π.χ. οι Τζιμ Τόμσον, Ρέ [...]


    4. Not as hardboiled as Mickey Spillane. Not as sleazy as James M. Cain. Not as doom-laden or quirky as Jim Thompson. But this is cut from the same cloth. I read this today, although its more like something I'd read in county jail, with little else to compete for my attention. No great shakes but amusing for its old school vernacular.
