RARA-AVIS: Re: Lemons Never Lie by Richard Stark

I really enjoyed "Lemons Never Lie," too. The idea of an artist turning to crime to subsidize his art seems to be a stereotype-breaker, unless there are similar protagonists I don't know about.

Also enjoyed the latest from Hard Case Crime, "Blackmailer" by George Axelrod - a fast-paced, well-written page turner from 1952. It's a "lost manuscript" thriller like so many books on the best-seller list these days.
