RARA-AVIS: Mike Shayne

I just finished reading "Midnight Wind," the lead novelette in the August 1981 issue of MSMM. The big redhead finds himself mixed up in murder at a seedy motel in the Florida Keys. You've got your backwoods types, your beautiful babes, your . . . ninjas! This is a dandy James Reasoner tale that plays off a couple of others that James write about the Black Lotus, though she doesn't appear personally in this one. A nice pulp feel to the whole thing, and I'm sure that Shayne is true to the Halliday character.
