RARA-AVIS: ARD, Hell is a City

<< At the Bouchercon last fall, Hal Rice and I were both still complaining that after hearing Nevins rave about the wonderfulness of HELL IS A CITY, we went out and found it. And both of us disliked it. I could hardly finish it. So I never read anything else by Ard. >>

I think I posted about this book about six months ago. I read it because it was at the top of an alphabetical list put together by Ed Gorman in The Big Book of Noir. I agree with Rice and Crider. I don't think the book has aged well. Doug
