Cheyney was GOOD!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Meet Mr Callaghan, The Urgent Hangman, Dangerous Curves, Eneasy Terms (Hardcover)
I bought this omnibus volume featuring three Slim Callaghan novels by Peter Cheyney in a nostalgic moment. What has pleased me so much is to find how well they stand up some 70 years afte their publication. The atmosphere is very much of the 1940s and this serves now to add character to what are excellent examples of the crime writer's art. Cheyney very much deserves re-reading, and in Slim Callaghan he has created a dark hero with a timeless appeal.
