short book review
Fade to blonde by Phillips, Max
I am feeling pretty mixed about this book... there were some snappy exchanges, and some interesting moments in this book... and I know that it's pulp... in that old pulp style... that style that's good to pass the time, but never really dares move past the conventions. why do I expect the conventions to be played with? cause others have been willing to do so, and even other books by Hard Case Crime have dared.... ok, over all this was a solid time passer... but it's not something that I am going to feel the need to revisit... and like this review, it had a bit of a hurried and obvious ending.
