FAST LANE (Private Invest-Denver-Cont) – G
Zeltserman, Dave – Standalone
Pointblank, 2004 – Hardcover
Private Investigator Johnny Lane has become famous in Denver due to his monthly columns talking about his cases. Unfortunately, he also happens to be a psychopath. When a young woman asks for his help finding her birth parents, with whom it turns out Johnny was involved, things get ugly very quickly.
This is a book for those who truly love noir; and I mean those fans of Jim Thompson and Quentin Tarantino. Although I don't number among those ranks, I could appreciate the quality of the writing and certainly found myself caught up in the story. However, personally, I was grateful the book was only 195 pages long. But if you are a Thompson / Tarantino fan, this book is probably for you.
