    For a short piece of fiction, this story hooked me immediately and had me completely absorbed the entire piece, trying to find our killer. No one was who they seemed and everyone was suspect. I loved it.Our protagonist, Fitz, isn’t so much of a protagonist but more a kinda lousy guy who is a self-proclaimed writer. At a bar, he meets Roy Parker, a crook who begs Fitz to write the story of how he saved two Jewish women from the war. For a seemingly innocent guy, Fitz willingly gets sucked into [...]

    I bought this book based on its goal: an attempt to write something like the old pulp crime books, but with gay characters.The book wasn't much of a mystery. It wasn't especially pulpy either. But it was pretty interesting. In 1949 London, a closeted writer hooks up with a guy who tells him stories of how he rescued two German Jewish ladies, while flashback chapters tell what really happened.I liked the book, but I think it could have stood to be a bit longer. Also, with the alternating stories, [...]

    The story itself isn't bad, it really isn't. And I quite like Bosman's off-handed way of characterisation.But it's all tell and no show, and needed an editor. Not a proofreader, SPaG were just fine. But someone, preferably a British native, to polish the language - which in this case also means: make it even more pulpy.

    Short and well writtenWhile not exactly noir, the book does evoke mood and atmosphere well. Heavy on style and nicely edited. There is plenty of plot and twists to keep most readers entertained. Recommended, 4 stars.
