Terse Book Reviews – Miami Blues by Charles Willeford










A great unsung crime novel marred only by occasionally clunky dialog/exposition.  Ripe for rediscovery.  Also a great movie.

(As a note, the afterward of the story includes a notice of the main character winning a baking contest in which she is identified as Mrs. Frank Mansifield.  For those aware of the Willeford oeuvre, they already know Frank Mansfield was the protagonist of Willeford’s earlier novel, Cockfighter.  Glad to see Frank Mansfield managed to find himself love.)
