Packed and Loaded is James M. Cain "unplugged", at his finest. The manuscript is seasoned with original epigraphs about this major American writer from masters like Elmore Leonard, Sue Grafton, Robert B. Parker, Dennis Lehane, Peter Lovesey, Phil Lovesey, Edward D. Hoch, Katherine Hall Page, Robin Moore, William G. Tapply, and the grand master of mystery himself, Rex Stout.
John McAleer graduated from Harvard University with a Ph.D. in English Literature and was the author of over a dozen books, including an Edgar Award-winning biography of Rex Stout. He was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for his biography of Emerson. He wrote critically-acclaimed studies of Thoreau and Dreiser, as well as a definitive novel on the Korean War, Unit Pride.

$7.17 for 55 pages and even a number of those are taken up with a history of the two "authors." Much of the interviews is incoherent. The editing is nonexistent with such errors as "to" for "too," incorrect last name for Harry Cohen, Scott Fitzgerald's companion Sheila Graham identified as Sheila Grant, and on and on.
Downloaded sample but it won't open. Not buying the book if I can't read the sample.
