I believe this book was later retitled THE HOT SPOT, to coincide with a so-so movie version that came out in the late Eighties. If we're talking about the same book, this is marvelous. We're talking amoral protagonists, good girls, bad girls, sweaty corruption in nowhere towns -- the whole nine yards, done superbly well. Most of Williams stuff is stupidly out of print-- he deserves to be reissued.

The only Gault book I've read to date (though I have DON'T CRY FOR ME lying around somewhere). I remember it to be a decent, workmanlike pi piece.
