review The Name of the Game Is Death

Dan J. Marlowe µ 0 read & download read & download Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook µ Dan J. Marlowe review The Name of the Game Is Death S himself Roy Martin has robbed a bank in Phoenix killed three men and caught a bullet in his arm Safety—and one half of 178000—awaits him on the other side of the country All that separates Martin from his destination are two thousand treacherous miles and three lethal. I can t believe I liked this book so much since I didn t like the main character at all I guess he s a psychopath He can read people very well but has absolutely no real feelings for most of them His back story explains that to some extent but he s incredibly cold divorced from society He does like animals though This one redeeming feature along with the horrible people he runs into explains why this was even readable but it went beyond that for me It was a fascinating journey told from his perspective as he tries to retrieve what is his well he stole it so he believes it is hisI definitely want to read of both this series any other books by this author Very well written with great characters

Marlowe review The Name of the Game Is Death Temptations to trust the wrong friend to love the right woman and to start believing that a man like himself can ever be safeThe Name of the Game is Death combines a narrative as taut as a hangman's rope with chillingly authentic insights into the psychology of casual murd. Very tight noir about holdup man and crack shot Earl Drake Some have mentioned that Drake reminds them of a first person version of Parker Richard Stark s bad boy I can see the parallels but they re two different cats Both are tough and smart though Drake shows some surprising vulnerabilities that in the end make him a believable character Interestingly Marlowe supplies us with a few chapters on Drake s growing up It doesn t explain why he does the things he does but his show him as being well different But that s OK Drake s a big boy and he d be the first one to tell you he was born that way The novel opens with a big bank robbery and shootout that has Drake and his fellow robber Bunny on the run They get the loot but they leave bodies behind and Drake himself is wounded They agree to split up with Bunny taking the loot to a small town in Florida Drake heals while Bunny ships him installments of cash And then the cash stops coming Drake has a good nose for talent and he knows Bunny wouldn t do him wrong Drake decides to hit the road in order to sort things out Drake is the kind of guy that does sort things out no matter the odds Drake as amoral as he is can be loyal and make friends In this case he takes a lover who he sincerely likes which kind of sets him apart from other hardasses I ve encountered in the American Night And he even loves animals Just don t cross him I was really impressed with how Marlowe closed this one up With about ten pages to go I was thinking the author had backed himself into a corner and would have to race to finish it Wrong Jim Thompson would have loved the wrap up If you like them mean and lean there isn t a wasted sentence in this oneNote This one is available in a cheap Kindle version It s a good value
