Fearless Jones? Is Mosley going pulp?

I couldn't resist: I am rereading Prather's _Gat Heat_, which is even better than I remembered. The name Agatha Smellow is a stroke of genius... Prather is the Groucho Marx of paperback originals.

Look at this simile:

"Her complexion was a delicate tint of poisoned limeade; and her expression was that of one biting down, all unaware, on thirty-two cavities."
