Having read Raoul Whitfield's excellent short story 'Mistral'
in the Pronzini/Adrian anthology Hard-boiled, I bought his
novel Green Ice recently. It's good stuff - a tight, fast
story, with a chaotic shoot-out climax. Definitely
recommended. There was some talk on this list a few months
ago about a collection of his short stories that's being
planned. Looking forward to that one.
On another note, Geoffrey Homes (Daniel Mainwaring)'s Build
My Gallows High is going to be reprinted in Feb 2001,
according to Amazon. This is, of course, the novel that the
fine Jacques Tourneur film Out of the Past (why did they
change the great original title?) is based on.
