I really enjoyed the noir gumshoe style, I'm a visual reader and couldn't help but see this entire story in black and white topped off with a smokey haze. The twist was surprising and even being a short, I thought Nick wrapped it up nicely. I'd love to read more of Lee Marvin!
Cole’s typically spare approach to narrative form provides easy access to the fun resulting from the mash-up. Marvin is a Hammett-like character we all know but who doesn’t really know himself. That makes for a read that’s comfortable, on the one hand, but allows for discovery of new nuances among the familiar. Cole makes the writing look effortless, as if you’re a fly on the wall observing the action rather than reading about it on an e-device. If you like noir, if you like The Matrix, if you like discovering the new within the old, pick up this story. I recommend reading it under a street lamp with a little ground fog nearby. It'll fit right in.
This is a delightful blending of science fiction and noir mystery. I have read stories that are similar but this one stands out. There are some nice twists and Lee Marvin makes an interesting lead. Give it a shot.
