Bill, I think it's as good as you remember and then some. I'm a huge fan of Black Wings. And the female lead was sexy as hell and hard as kryptonite.

In fact, a couple years ago I toyed with the idea of re-printing a handful of long out-of-print hardboiled/noir titles and Black Wings was on my shortlist. (I quickly found out it would be a lot of work and zero money!)

By the way, Elliot Chaze also wrote a book called "The Stainless Steel Kimono". I haven't read it, but understand it to be a war novel.
