I was wondering if any of Rob Kantner's series featuring Detroit PI Ben
Perkins would fall into this category. Kantner won three Shamus Awards for
Best PBO. I've only read a couple, which I enjoyed and have one titled Made
in Detroit to read. It mentions hot cars on the cover.
While digging through boxes in my garage this morning, I spotted a TPB
titled The Keys to Tulsa by Brian Fair Berkey. The artwork on the front
cover looks something like a Corvette, which may or may not have any
connection to the contents. What did grab me enough to bring the book back
into my house was the Publishers Weekly blurb: "It's as if the cast of Taxi
Driver were to invade the set of True Grit: a sort Redneck Film Noir." That
might resonate with the noir experts on the list. Anyone read it?
