Dime Detective by Randy ChandlerApril 15, 2012

“Hard-boiled private-eye books set in the pulp era but written in the here and now are often better than the vintage product. The new breed of retro authors isn’t getting paid by the word and, therefore, isn’t padding thin stories; instead, they’re crafting their books with considerable care and quality, and this novel is every bit a winner. Chandler introduces PI Joe Dall in a slick, atmospheric work that captures the underbelly of
the 1950s with a sharp eye for detail and a flair for the sinister. The Deep South, voodoo, bad cops, a depraved movie star, and a glamorous, gun-toting sidekick—all add their share of pulpy ambience in this first-rate debut. Look for more to come along in this series. Recommend Dime Detective to fans of Tom Piccirilli (Every Shallow Cut, 2011), whose thrillers are set in today’s world but capture the spirt of the pulp era perfectly.”

–Elliot Swanson, Booklist
