I return to the blogging coalface after yet another damp, but refreshing, Summer, bursting with information and generally sitting up and taking notice.

Reading took a pleasant turn with the discovery of a very engaging and warm spirited writer, Alan Glynn. His first novel,
The Dark Fields
has a cult following among noir fans.

Big pharma is big news these days. The story of Eddie Spinola, drugged and flying high, is a cautionary tale.
Told in first person narrative and with a tight inner structure the story leads from
hamartia to peripeteia in a very satisfying way. The characters he meets are memorable and have distinctive voices. Interiors seem real.

No need to take a trip abroad when reading this book.
I feel that I've been to New York and back again.

Cool Heat
