    Tough Guy Fiction At Its Hardboiled Best!!

    I was shocked to learn that 361 has NEVER appeared in paperback in the US. And that it has been out of print forever. This gut-wrenching revenge tale cannot be put down and shows no signs of rust since it first appeared in 1962. With deft plotting, rocket-fire pacing, deft characterization and grim humor, 361 takes the reader on a journey through a violent world where the consequences of violent acts are the true perils. These tough guy characters leap of the page, never one-dimensional. And if you think you know where this story is going, you're wrong. 361 is just too good to be missed.

    Goodness, I hope you won't pay actual money for this--at least without checking a sample. I got it sight unseen for my Nook, and was seriously displeased at what I got for the money--though I could have shrugged off fifty cents or so. If you are a comic-Westlake fan, you will be unhappy that this was written long before he acquired his wickedly humorous writing style. (It was written under the Stark pseudonym, a hint to all that it's not a comic caper.) It's a noir in the most unenjoyable sense, from 1962, and quite dated. I found it depressing and dreary, and felt quite grim at the end. I'm guessing the previous review was written by a guy, and one who likes "tough guy fiction"; if you are in love with books like Smoke and Dancing Aztecs, let this one slide.
