This was my second De Blase novel, and I loved it every bit as much as the first, A Cougar's Kiss.
Great character, Frankie Valentine, along with the ladies, cops and bad guys in his world. It's a really good hard-boiled yarn, up there with the very best in the genre.
‘She looked both delicious and dilapidated, a beautiful bleach blonde train wreck. I didn't know whether to feel bad for her or feel her up.’
Aside from a fantastic cast, the story rolls along at a good speed with action and twists. Absolutely loved it!
Femmes fatales abound in this great hard-boiled collection - "Busted Valentines and Other Dark Delights" by Frank De Blase.
