The Long-Legged Fly, by James Sallis (No Exit Press, 2012)

Episodes in the New Orleans life of an occasional PI, repo man, and (mostly) functioning alcoholic. The first Lew Griffin mystery works as a prequel to the series, establishing the fictional detective’s bona fides. Something of a meta-novel about crime writing and experience, the book’s a cracker, with character and atmosphere aplenty. Recommended.

My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
