Overview

Three hard-boiled stories that hark back to the days of Black Mask and Astounding Science Fiction.

The first tale is a novella that introduces private dick Jay Dafoe. He’s in a dirty business, and cold hard cash has always made up for twinges his conscience might occasionally feel, or so he thought until he’s hired to find a missing daughter. How does the amoral Dafoe handle the horror he unwittingly becomes entwined with?

The second story finds Dafoe doing what he thought was routine work for a lawyer. What he doesn’t know is that he is the final pawn in a tragedy that was thirty years in the making. Some sins, Dafoe finds out, can’t be forgiven.

The third story is a study of a thug with a badge. Ben Andropov is a cop. The bosses are management, and the beat is the moon. Management wants order and doesn’t care how it’s kept. Andropov is a low-level enforcer of the status quo, having used his natural brutality to escape the drudgery and poverty of the everyday citizen. Seventeen years he’s been a cop, and it’s starting to take its toll. Solving a simple murder winds up inflicting more damage to what’s left of his crippled soul and there’s no way out.

Cold Pulp Trio is hard-boiled noir. American as hollow point bullets.

Another fun read from Mr./Ms. White. I hope there will be more available soon. If so, they'll definitely be on my reading list. The short stories were really well put together I thought. The sci-fi themed final story was a surprise and packed some interesting ideas in there. I've always been a fan of mystery stories and do have a weakness for the short ones. Very satisfying, and these were. Much better job on editing this one than on Scrambled Hard Boiled - thank goodness. Still some odd mistakes for a writer: Confusion between waived and wave, evidently and evidentially. I am most certainly going to be keeping an eye out for more from E. R. White, Jr.
