    A long Lost Masterpeice of 20th Century Writing

    Barns&Noble Readers-Welcome!
    By this writers Lights, this is one of the best books of early modern cime fiction ever to see print. The author,Mr.Boyle was a newspaper man, drug addict, convict, Hollywood writer & a first rate Knight of the Quill. Just for an ensample, his first novel was snapped up for a silent movie, he spent a succesful life working as a writer for films from his books.
    The writing is powerful, consice, & shows a larger understanding of the human condition.It also decrys an era of Law Enforcement abuse(the use of a stait jacket to cut off your bloodflow-as a prision punishment-graft of Police Chiefs &misc). The quality of writing is on a line with HL Menchen, Ambrose Bierce, Mark Twain, & E.A.Poe with a bit of Ellory Queen, Dick Tracy, Sam Spade, & even "Guy Noir-Private Eye-of PBS fame.
    The saddest part of this Book is its loss to the current generation of readers, both at home & at schools; the defect corrected by Kessinger Publishing Company. I own several of the "Boston Blackie' movies- they hold not a candle to the original stories.
    So, put your kopecks you would spend on buying your morning coffee into a Mason Jar-when you have enough GO FORTH AND BUY THIS BOOK!
    And it even gives you an insight into the current political race; do you know "Mitt"(as in Mitt Rommey) means 'to shake another man's hand?!
    This is the One Book to Buy-even if you never more buy another book this year, wether you are a Crime Fiction fan or not. The Education you will have on the Genius of the Human Mind under adverse conditons-will pay you all the dividends.
    Oh, did I say--Buy This Book?
    Read On
