I'm reading this right now (19 March 2006) and it is excellent. It seems completely mad to me that no one discusses the Mike Shayne books; they're so amazingly well written, and, actually, I think would appeal to a thoroughly modern palate. Very seedy, this one. Quite harsh but delicious indeed. Maybe I'll change my mind before I reach the end? Anyway, its pace is dizzying and Halliday's prose has the ability to fill one to overflowing with vivid images and sensations. Every time I crack it, it's like turning on a lurid film, loud! Three short sittings and I'm on the last few pages (will probably finish tomorrow). P.S. It was awesome. Great twist at the end—highly recommended!
