All in all, I found it to be very unique and worthy of a read.
Low life characters speak tough colloquialisms but halfway through a conversation start sounding like they graduated magna cum laude from college. Then they lapse back into tenth grade '30's street talk. This book was a mess, all the way through.
Except Collins is a better writer and his stories are correspondingly better reading.
Here Mr. Bishop has his hero, Matt Kile, a gossip columnist in L.A. becoming involved with notable L.A. hoods of the day, especially Mickey Cohen. Kile has a great deal of unflappability, whether he is being approached by a beautiful babe, surviving a drive-by shooting, or witnessing having a man gunned down across the table from him.
Mr. Bishop overdoes it with the tough-guy patter, and really goes overboard with the use of similes. It all gets as tiresome and phoney as a politician's smile. ( see what I mean?) Raymond Chandler, he is definitely not., but then few are.
I thought the book was ok, not deeply involving, with flat characters and a bland story no matter how many bodies hit the ground.
