RARA-AVIS: Hard Case Crime imprint - David Dodge

Comments on this list about the Hard Case Crime imprint made me curious, so I looked at the hardcasecrime.com website and was happy to find that a David Dodge novel, PLUNDER OF THE SUN, is one of the books to be published in the series.

Dodge definitely deserves some attention. I've read 3 of his books from the 1940s and 50s, THE LONG ESCAPE (featuring the same PI character as PLUNDER OF THE SUN), RANSOM OF THE ANGEL (about gangsters hijacking a boat) and SHEAR THE BLACK SHEEP (main character is an accountant who acts like a PI). All have been entertaining, well-written thrillers. Dodge tends to specialise in exotic settings, adding some scenic appeal to the books.

There's a good David Dodge fan website at http://www.david-dodge.com
