In this book Simon Swift takes you back to the 50's and the era of the hardboiled gumshoe. The Gumshoe in question is Errol Black who has returned to the somewhat strange town of Casablanca to invesitigate his friends murder. This book is so well written that it had me completely immersed in and believing I was back in the 50's. I could picture everything as though I was right in the thick of the action. There is a cast of ever more eccentric characters, and yet each one of them seems exactly right for the time and for the story. The gangsters and the thugs were portrayed exactly right. The suspense in the book is high and keeps you guessing until the end. In fact, the ending took me completely by surprise, and I did not see it coming at all. At several points I thought I had worked things out but was completely wrong each time. The storyline moves along at a rapid pace, but somehow still manages to portray a time when things were more laid back. The book has everything, murder, mystery, friendship, thugs, gangsters, fights, drink and gambling.In the midst of this there is also a glimpse of honour amongst theives. Swift somehow manages to encompass it all.

Anyone who likes a good PI book, in the style of the 50's authors will not be disappointed. I do have to add though that there is a strong adult theme in this book with a lot of adult content. This is not usually something I would like in a book but it does fit well in this one due to the nature of the storyline. I would highly recommended this book but it is not for the easily offended.

There will always be a new generation ready to take over in any genre and Simon Swift is set to dominate the crime scene. His main character Errol Black has elements of Sam Spade and Mike Hammer but he only resembles them in fleeting moments and Simon develops a new breed for the genre. The only confusion I had was that (Being a Brit)I didn't know that there was a Casablanca in the states and so my imagination started off in North Africa.Highly recommended and five stars.

THE CASABLANCA CASE
by SIMON SWIFT
REVIEW

Reading one of Simon Swifts' novels is a bit like meeting up with an old friend. Errol Black is one of my favourite fictional characters, and this time he is down in Casablanca solving yet another case.

Explosive openings are becoming a trade mark of Simon Swift and the Casablanca Case is no exception.
Two teenagers are copulating in sand dunes on a beach lost in their own needs. A little way off men are being assassinated with silencer fitted .45's where they sleep.

As we move on in the story Errol is in the morgue about to take a look at the body of his oldest friend Hermeez Wentz. His courage comes from smoking several lungful's of a `lucky' before he pulls back the sheet.
The death is filed under a burglary gone wrong, but Errol knows better than that and is determined to prove otherwise with or without the help of the local Police....

If you love a real good crime mystery you will love The Casablanca Case, the sequel to Black Shadows. There are several murders, a very good sprinkling of eroticism in the storyline and the appearance of a past love interest which also heats up the pages.

This is the second novel I've read in the series convinced I had sussed out the outcome only to be outwitted once again by the superb writing of Simon Swift.

If you love Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammet and the like, you will love The Casablanca Case.

For me, both Black Shadows and The Casablanca Case have the potential of becoming blockbuster films. Liquid gold seems to just drip from every page written by Simon Swift.

Welcome back Errol Black - an older, smarter Errol, going back to his home town to find it much changed, not always for the better. This is another thrilling mystery with more twists than a roller coaster.
The one thing I felt about this book was that the true Simon Swift was writing it, his own style coming through even though the theme and the essence was old-style detective - and the book was better for this. Well done, Simon.
We get to know a little bit more about Errol in between the chasing of the bad guys. The end took me completely by surprise. A great read. Looking forward to the next!!

Crime novels are always fun, especially when they are well written; the characters become real in front of your eyes and you are sucked into the underworld of the city you are reading about.

"The Casablanca Case" is no exception. This is a detective drama with a modern twist and fully deserves to be made into a movie or TV series - Erroll Black could be the next "Michael Weston"!

I really enjoyed reading this and think it deserves to be a winner.
