Jeff asked about:

The Prone Gunman - Jean-Patrick Manchette (City Lights)

Fantastic book, both this and Three to Kill. Really wish City Lights hadn't stopped at two when translating Manchette

Leave Her to Heaven - Ben Ames Williams (Chicago Review Press)

Was this what the Gene Tierney movie was based on? That was an odd, but good cross between noir (although in color) and a Douglas Sirk melodrama.
