Hunter at Large by Thomas B. Dewey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another fine character driven noir from Dewey, this time telling the story of a cop solving the mystery of his wife's murder as he ventures across the county on the trail of the killers. The emphasis here is on the exceptionally well drawn characters and their true and vivid dialogue. The plotting holds together well, although the climax at the end seems a bit rushed. One of those books that seem like it would make a great movie. This novel is included in the The Noir Novel MEGAPACK ™: 4 Great Crime Novels for a mere $0.99 and hopefully can find a well deserved larger audience.
