HARDBOILED CORNER: THE DIAMOND BOOMERANGE!

HARDBOILED CORNER:THE DIAMOND BOOMERANG!

LESTER S. TAUBE

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS NOVEL, BUT IT CAN'T POSSIBLY LIVE UP TO THE AMAZING OPENING . . . OR THE COOL COVER . . .

Dan Baldwin knew how it felt to wake up in the gutter- coming to in the desert was much more frightening. — "I open my eyes, focus them, then let out the god-damnedest, loudest, most terrified nerve-grinding croak in my life! Standing on my outstretched arm, talons dug deep into my skin, is the ugliest most repulsive, horrifying monster of a vulture I have ever seen! Its beak is sunk into my biceps, and it is shaking its head viciously, attempting to rip off the flesh!"

Dan Baldwin's life was a mess- and it looked as if his death would be one, too.
