RARA-AVIS: A twofer by Gil Brewer from Stark House

I've meant to say a few words about a Gil Brewer twofer I bought from Stark House: WILD TO POSSESS/A TASTE FOR SIN. Both are choice noir reads. WILD takes place in tropical Florida and is about a failed kidnap caper. TASTE, a bank heist, was the better written and the paranoia drips off the pages. Bill Pronzini's great essay is included along with contributions by Gregory Shephard and Gil's wife, Verlaine Brewer. There's also a GB bibliography. All in all, a nice package with robust reading. I enjoyed it.
