Bill Sweeney is a down-and-out lush. He is also a top-notch reporter. Aroused by the naked beauty of the Ripper's fourth victim--or near-victim--Sweeney pulls himself together and goes after the killer. As he puts questions and answers together, he finds himself face to face with madness and death.

Brown's "Screaming Mimi" is a great choice if you're looking for down-and-dirty noir with tight plotting and burly prose. Pretty much impossible to put down once it gets going, with a premise that gets creepier as it chugs along. Some editorial issues with this edition, but at .99 I can only whine so much. If you're unsure which of the noir offerings to check out on your Nook, here is one that's definitely worth a look. Glad I took a chance on it.

A thriller about an Irish news reporter named Sweeney who gets off a 2 week binge by obsessing over a blond stripper that has an attack dog. His dream is to solve The Ripper Murders. The MacGuffin in this story is a statuette of a terrified girl that takes Sweeney through all the dives and strip joints of Chicago. Lots of colorful characters and a suprise ending. A great story to read on a rainy day in one sitting!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
