****************** I think the only Mike Shayne I've read is TASTE OF VIOLENCE, and if I recall correctly Shayne drives up to Kentucky to handle the case. I thought Hughes' RIDE THE PINK HORSE was a stunning piece of writing. Classic noir. The movie shuffled the plot more than I cared for, and siphoned off a large degree of the noir element, but it was still great. I am looking forward to her IN A LONELY PLACE.
