Fast and fun read. Sure, it's quite far-fetched and convoluted, and unrelated things seem related, but aren't, in the end. But I enjoyed it. I haven't had many Block books to read lately, so this was a nice nostalgic read... it kinda sucks when writers you like, a lot, don't write much any more. I liked this story enough that I am going to dig around some bookstores to see if I can find others in the Burglar series that I haven't read yet.

A rocus randy story, told thru letters, of a mans escape into ..... something new. Good bawdy fun.

This is close to a prototypical noir story i have in my head. An alcoholic detective in a dark blurry unfriendly world struggling with meaning, struggling with a case, struggling for a piece of love and comfort. A very cozy atmosphere of meaningless meanderings and beautiful visuals.
