Beluga by Rick Gavin
Gavin’s follow up to his highly entertaining debut Ranchero has his heroes Rick and Desmond in deep trouble with the Memphis mob and a schoolgirl ninja when they try to move a truckload of stolen tires. A fun, rollicking redneck hard boiled read that’s perfect for fans of Joe Lansdale’s Hap and Leonard series.
Return Of The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett
When MGM asked Hammett for a synopsis for the second and third Thin Man movies, he gave them two novellas. Now they are in print for the first time, with a history on the pictures and this point in Hammett’s career. A must for any film or mystery buff.
