<<A friend of mine recently told me about reading
Mistress to Murder by
Robert Dietrich. He said it was okay, not great, but kind of fun for
its local setting in DC. >>
I remember _Mistress to Murder_ as more than okay; I recall
it as an
exciting and suspenseful tale in an unpretentious but effective style.
For the record, as a rule I prefer straightforward writers to ornate
I'm jotting down some notes on the Chandler stories, which
I'll be able to post in a few installments.
