Super! The first book I have ever read in which I saw the film (Out of the Past) first! The book & the film are almost identical with the exception of location & a few names in the novel! It was a page turner from the minute I opened it! A complete twist with a hard boiled character & a real seedy cast of dismal beings! I really think that the female character (femme fatale) was the first real "bad girl" of this pulp crime era. She is gritty & takes betrayal to an entirely different level! I couldn't help but to sympathize with the protagonist, being caught in a love triangle, heist, & a web of deceit! Even better was the ending, it was believable & a relief! Written with such wit, bringing out the darkness in every character that crosses the page! Extremely entertaining, it is short & an easy read! I have read it twice this month! I would recommend it!
