Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These volumes introduce the Hard Case Crime line, which replicates the inexpensive, pocket edition (each measures 4" x 6.5") of hard-boiled pulps sporting lurid covers of tough guys and hot dames. The authors run the gamut from vintage gods like Gardner to the early work of current top mystery men Block, Collins, and Westlake. Absolute gangbusters! Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    WOW! What a great read!!

    This glorious book is by one of the grand masters of the genre, Erle Stanley Gardner. Although best known for bringing the world's best known lawyer to the forefront of the reading public, the creation of his that is pure detective fiction is the main characters of this novel... Bertha Cool and Donald Lam. This novel is Gardner and Lam at their best. Lam is hired by a rich young man to find the girls he had been partying with a few days before and that is the last easily explained happening in the book. From then on Gardner weaves a plot as far-reaching and mystifying that most detectives would be lost following. But, in Gardner's golden words, not only does Donald Lam follow along with few hiccups, but we, the reader, are able to keep right up with the diminuitive detective. For those readers who have found today's writers and their stories a little lacking, or those just looking for some great, edge-of-your-seat reading, this book is for you. For many years, I have been telling friends that read that they have missed out on some of the best stories of all time by not reading any of the great mysteries of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Guess I must not have been the only one who has felt this way. A new publisher, Hard Case Crime, is bringing back not only some of the books I loved, one of which this book is one, but are also publishing new stories written in the same way as those wonderful old books but by present day authors. For all of the new readers out there, you will love this book. For those of you who are old enough to have read this book and others by Mr. Gardner, let's, you and I, go back home again and visit with an old friend...Donald Lam in 'Top of the Heap'.

    Amazing detective story!

    This is easily one of the five best detective stories I've ever read. The plot is complicated, the resolution is satisfying, the characters spring to life from the page, and the writing is delicious. A great virtuoso performance by the peerless Erle Stanley Gardner.
