Private Eye July

‘I hope to Christ they don’t hang you, precious, by that sweet neck…’
'I’m going to send you over. The chances are you’ll get off with life. That means you’ll be out again in twenty years. You’re an angel. I’ll wait for you.’ He cleared his throat. 'If they hang you I’ll always remember you.’
— Dashiel Hammett, The Maltese Falcon

Its a good time of year for those Mystery Who Done It Parties. 
There are many ways you can enjoy this noir!

Binge on Jack Taylor on Netflix!
A treasure worth killing for. Sam Spade, a slightly shopworn private eye with his own solitary code of ethics. A perfumed grafter named Joel Cairo, a fat man name Gutman, and Brigid O’Shaughnessy, a beautiful and treacherous woman whose loyalties shift at the drop of a dime. These are the ingredients of Dashiell Hammett’s coolly glittering gem of detective fiction, a novel that has haunted three generations of readers.

Or catch up on the original HARD BOILED Novel!

Ed Noon from the 70's. Now a rare book find!

 Some might even call them Old Dicks, and I'm not even talking about porn.

Contemporary and a LBGTQ romance too!

Anyway, its July. Find some hot mysteries to cool down with!
