As has already been pointed out, Chase was somewhat of a trash writer. Then again, his books vary extremely much in quality and some were way better than others. So, while I regard "Flesh of the Orchid" as probably some of the worst drivel ever, I really like e.g. "Strictly for Cash". "You're Lonely when You're Dead" is not bad; no masterpiece, but quite readable.

Very entertaining comedy. Has everything from reefer madness to the drinking of embalment fluid.
