Plenty of Corpses & No Remorses in this Modern-update of Classic Private Eye Mystery Novel
Payton Sherwood, the down-and-out private detective of EAST OF A, returns, more down-and-out than before and with a more complex case breathing down his neck. It starts with the "accidental" hit-and-run of a famous private eye, but leads to blackmail, embezzlement, child pornography, and murder after murder. Truly a non-stop, page-turner with a great finish and wonderful final line.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Imperfect yet likeable
Peyton Sherwood slips out of the investigative loop from time to time yet manages to land on his feet. Impefect yet likeable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I hope Russell Atwood is able to put one of these on the shelves every year.
Hard Case Crime does it again
another excellent book in the Hard Case Crime series. Charles Ardai, the general editor, goes back and coaxes relative unknowns with past noir or hard-boiled novels to do one for his series. In this case, Russell Atwood, who wrote East of A, ressurects his East Village P.I. and a few other characters plus some new ones, and at the same time gives a good picture of the "developments" in Alphabet City over the past decade and a half. Highly recommended, and the whole Hard Case Crime series as well! And the book covers are excellent, like the old jackets on 50s and 60s pulp.Was this review helpful?
