    My first Mike Shayne experience good fun but nothing incredible4 stars seems like a high rating to give to a book that is basically 159 pages of Mike Shayne doing his best to out hard boil Marlowe and Spade with very little in the way of plot but as my first experience of said private eye it scores high because of my pure enthusiasm for the character and the writing styleI've been than intrigued to give Halliday a go since seeing Kiss Kiss Bang Bang many years ago but trying to find any of the books for a reasonable price has been hard going strange considering just how prevalent copies of these pulp crime novels were when first publishedThings are painted in pretty broad strokes you've got the tough as nails good guy Shayne the vindictive bad guy chief of detectives and the generic villain who sets the adventure in motion by killing his wife and trying to get away with it You can't help but roll your eyes with frustration at how beef headed the cop and the villain are because that's the way Halliday wanted it we need to be in the cheer suad for good old Mike Shayne from the off whooping with joy when he finally ties all the loose ends together in the penultimate chapter allowing him time to romance the bit part dame in this instance his receptionistI for one will be looking forward to my next Mike Shayne adventure whenever that might be anyone in Perth want to sell me some?

    Every Mike Shayne mystery no matter which Brett Halliday wrote it is a solid well crafted mystery easy to read and hard to put down This one in particular seems to have been written to have a wide appeal to female readers as well as male readers It focuses a bit than usual on Shayne's relationship with his secretary Lucy Hamilton what they wore on their date and her frustration and jealousy at every stacked blonde making eyes for Shayne Overall though the plot was uite predictable and you knew what was coming even if Shayne didn't seem to But it's got the usual Fistfights murder fleeing from the police and Shayne's unwillingness to play by the rules

    It's surprising that a prolific author cranking out so many stories about one detective can find so many different approaches and details to explore in an effort to keep the reader engaged Having Shayne lose his firearm on the beach and then swim out to a resort to escape was pretty refreshing as was the ongoing theme of absolutely nothing working out for him Lots of tension building up around a toxic relationship too where a stupid insecure man keeps a woman imprisoned to punish her indefinitely keeping them both locked away from any happiness in life

    No plot and the characters are cardboard It reads like the blueprint of a cloned film noir I've never been to Miami so can't truly judge whether this as it would have been circa 1957 is captured with any kind of verisimilitude Could just as well be LA the local color being minimal
