DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
NO!... I love this book!
An extremely fun book to read. The descriptions are vivid and I could picture the characters doing all these things in my mind.
I highly recommend this book to anybody that truly loves classic era film noir.
Even though my book was purchased new, it had a creased corner and a few other imperfections. But, it's condition only seemed to enhance my reading experience.
As far as I know, this story was never made into a movie, and that's truly a shame.
