RARA-AVIS: Halo For Satan

I finally finished reading this P.I. Paul Pine/Howard Browne title (many thanks to a book swap with Joyce). The plot is pretty basic and I read somewhere Mr. Browne wrote it in five weeks. But I enjoyed the vintage hardboiled tone, gritty Chicago setting, and clever Chanlderesque metaphors. "Poor old Pine" at one point reads a William P. McGivern crime novel and he goes to the movies. Pine is a likeable P.I. This paperback is a Penzler reprint.
