Review: The Moving Target by Ross Macdonald

Classic crime fiction set in old Hollywood with storytelling as smooth as a ride in a Deusenberg. Archer’s hired to find a rich eccentric who’s gone missing; maybe kidnapped — or worse. This short novel is packed with lyrical dialogue, plot twists and a cast of deliciously sinister characters tromping through the seedy side of L. A. I’m already itching to read more of Ross Macdonald’s fine books. Highly recommended!

The Black Lizard Big Book of Pulps edited by Otto Penzler is immediately available for Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Sony Reader & Kobo. And I’m psyched to learn that The Black Lizard Big Book of Black Mask Stories edited by Otto Penzler is available for pre-order (May 9, 2012) for Kindle, iBooks & Nook. Both are 1000+ pages in paperback. Don’t like to crack the spines? Get the eBooks!
