5.0 out of 5 stars Black is...the new black!, 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BLACK (Hard-boiled noir detective mystery) (Kindle Edition)
Russell Blake has created an intriguing character in Artemus Black, a down-on-his-luck PI with a penchant for the good old days. Black seems to have been born fifty years too late, driving an ancient Cadillac and dressing like a fifties film star. That's the least of his worries. His secretary seems to have been put on the planet to make his life a misery, and along with the stray office cat whose sole purpose in life is to torment him, it's a wonder he gets anything done.

Add to that a pair of mega-rich hippy parents and an eclectic set of associates and you've got a hilarious set up for what promises to be a cracker of a series.

In the first instalment, Black must find out who is trying to ruin the comeback of a once-great Hollywood producer. The paparazzi are dropping like flies and Black must find out who is killing them while fighting off the affections of his client's stunning wife.

Blake has a history of creating wonderful characters, but this one will take some beating.
