The Blue Sweetheart by David Goodis

Thick sticky heat came gushing from the Indian Ocean, closed in on Ceylon, and it seemed to Clayton that he was the sole target. He sat at the bar of a joint called Kroner's on the Colombo waterfront, and tried vainly to cool himself with gin and ice. It was Saturday night and the place was mobbed, and most of them needed baths. Clayton told himself if he didn't get out soon, he'd suffocate. But he knew he couldn't walk out. If he walked out, he'd be killed. And for what? A glittering sapphire and a beautiful platinum blonde―and Clayton wanted them both; wanted them badly enough to kill for them. Gritty, exotic noir by the author of Dark Passage.

About the Author

David Goodis is one of the most enigmatic and acclaimed authors to come out of the world of pulp crime fiction. Born in Philadelphia, he brought a jazzy, expressionist style and an almost hallucinatory intensity to his spare, passionate, uncompromising novels of mean streets and doomed people. Goodis first rose to national attention with the book Dark Passage, which was adapted as the classic film noir starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in 1947.
