This was definitely a good story, and well written. However, the ending was no surprise--at least for seasoned readers. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys crime fiction, with a disclaimer not to expect to be blown away.

Hard Case Crime's latest installment is absolutely delicious. In The Girl With the Long Green Heart, Lawrence Block walks you through a classic film noir fable, replete with every character you expect to meet along the way. The bad are good, the good are bad, and you are immersed in every shady two step and doublecross. Makes you want to grow up to be a con man. Cheers not only to Block, but to Charles Adai and his entire Hard Case Crime series, which consistently turns out pulp fiction at its very best.

This is an older book that can be hard to find among all the useless so-called popular fiction or annoying 'vampire' books. I do love the Hard Case Crime Books; especially the grifter books like this one. You know what grifters are, right? People that con others and then move on. What I remember {spoiler alert} is that she winds up playing the men that were I think playing her! Rebel against the NOOK!!!!!!!
