RARA-AVIS: Re: Robert Leslie Bellem

I finished BLUE MURDER (which is actually quite short) and I can see why people aren't sure if Bellem's doing a parody or if he thought that was good writing. The language is a riot, even though it tones down over the course of book. Some roscoes do sneeze ka-chow or cough ka-chee at the end, though. The plot is outrageous, and every chapter someone outlines a few possible solutions of the crime to someone else. Damned good fun, though, and I'm going to find some Dan Turner short stories.
