In this outing, a down on his luck gambler and private investigator finds himself the overnight guest of a cult in the middle of nowhere. The member who helps him asks him to find out what happened to a former member. Finding out what happened involves two cases, inevitably connected as they always are in the noir American pulp and a lot of old griefs. If you are a fan of the mid-century pulp novel and aren't ready to re-read the greats, Millar is definitely an author to explore.
One day (by chance !!!),our detective/stranger Joe Quinn,hitched a ride from a guy and
was then just "dropped off" by the guy who did not want to drive him all the way home.
Quinn was left alone near some place called "the tower' . The people who live at the tower
were a group of "religious fanatics" who lived very simple and according to the "lord" or
"master". One of the 'sisters" there was friendly to Quinn (they were not unfriendly but...)
Quinn stayed one night and before he left,Sister Blessing,has an unusual request,she
asked him to find a man named,"Patrick O'Gorman. (AND DO NOT TELL THE OTHERS)
All right,no problem. YEAH...there is a problem, Patrick O'Gorman was DEAD and this starts
the whole story rolling at the speed of a train,right down the tracks,going this way and that way.
It was an enjoyable ride.
I read through the whole book slowly. as I was reading, was forming my opinion of what I thought
really happened. I has a couple plausible ideas and one of them was correct (!) and if I could say
it without revealing the end,(i will say),"hiding in plain sight". Actually,some of the book is convoluted where
I am thinking,'wait,that does not make sense..I am lost". "This does not jive with what happened."
I am curious if other readers would think so ??? WHO---HER ???? and WHAT was the reasoning ????
I would like to see more reviews of this one.
