Review: Kim

Kim Kim by Robert Colby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another fine private eye novel from the golden age of paperback P.I.s featuring the first person narrative of former cop Rod Striker, more lecherous than the typical P.I. and his assistant Myra Bailey, who narrates an excellent and thrilling chapter herself, which I thought was a nice touch. The short novel is well plotted and provides a few nice surprises. Striker and Myra are interesting characters and I would like to read more about them, although I can't find any mentions of them being part of a series. It's unfortunate that non-series detective novels seem bound for obscurity. This is a good one.
