A Welcome Return,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Return of the Thin Man (Hardcover)
I grew up watching the black and white movies of the Thin Man, Philip Marlowe, and Sam Spade on TV, and always particularly enjoyed the sharp dialogue which I tried to capture in my own detective novel,SOFT IN THE MIDDLE,(a light-hearted novel about an inexperienced detective employed by his ex-wife to find her current lover). So it was a treat to discover this previously unpublished story although, as it was written for the film series, it does not run as smoothly as a fully developed novel would, and perhaps the wit was not as sharp as I remembered. However, it was still great to renew my acquaintance with one of my favourite detectives.
