Both plot and character driven, the novel brings the reader back to the darker side of 1947 Brooklyn. Hart includes all the best elements of the detective genre; mystery, action, sharp dialogue, Hitchcock-like suspense, wisecracks, and a cast of characters, including the Sam-Spade-like Harry Parker. The characters are like people you know. Location descriptions are terrific, setting a realistic tone and a sense of brooding. Clues are dispensed sparingly. Until the end I wasn't sure which way it was going. Also, I particularly enjoyed the cynical observations of the narrating detective. Very entertaining with plenty of twists and turns, it’s as good as it gets in the hard-boiled detective genre.
If you like detective novels, here’s one to keep you reading late into the night. I’m glad to know it’s the first in a series, because I’m looking forward to the next.
I enjoyed being teleported back in time to America in the late 1940s and the golden age of the hardboiled detective fiction. Hart has a keen eye for detail as well as capturing the ambiance of the time. And you just got to love Harry Parker and his flair for witticisms which would make Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe proud.
This was a fun read and a gem from Jim Hart!
The Panama Affair
It evokes the Dashiell Hammett Raymond Chandler novels I grew up with reading. Back to 1940's Brooklyn
with a cast of characters worthy of the aforementioned writers
"A TOMS COLLINS TO GO" is the best book i have read in quite some time!
Some great one liners adds to the humor.
