The stories are fabulous decadent fun. Incredibly homoerotic - as my gay male friend commented, 'I've had sex with men that was less gay than that' - and with a very weird streak of off-centre morality and class consciousness running through them, which adds a lot to the basic crime caper stories.
Sadly, as is fairly common with this publisher, the formatting is distinctly wonky at points (italics rendered in capitals and story titles appearing as part of running text), but you get what you pay for, and at least it's not rammed with spelling errors.
Also, the chapters are run into each other without even a paragraph break, and there are numerous crass typos. Evidently it has been scanned with OCR from hardcopy and nobody has bothered to check the result. It gets 3 start because it was on a very cheap offer, but I would have been very upset if I had paid full price.
I suppose it says something for the book that I nevertheless finished the volume, but for a while there it was in the balance.
