    What s better than a Johnny Lidell story Lots of Johnny Lidell stories Rumour has it that Kane wrote 30 novels and as many as 400 Lidell short stories These are some of the best Lidell is a typical hardboiled PI in the traditional sense Kane s tales are easy reading and lots of fun if you like this genre This collection starts with a tale of what happens to reporters when they investigate folks who don t want to be investigated, Lead Ache Leave it up to Lidell and his gal pal Barbara to find out what s going on and what happened to the reporter and to the girls who are disappearing The second selection, Frame, is another great read Lidell gets a call from an actress client who is being guarded by one of his associates Things are not good when he gets out there and the local pice think Lidell s responsible The third story is Return Engagement A client shows up and tells Lidell that he has been on the run because he shot a man to death six months earlier but the man s photo shows up in that day s paper with a blurb about being killed the night before in a hit and run Another solid hardboiled hit The fourth selection is The Dead Grin, a really short story about hunting accidents and insurance claims Story number five is A Package For Mr Big On his way home from a bar on a foggy night, Lidell sees a blonde woman waiting for him She gives him a package and disappears But the trouble is only beginning and Lidell better watch out He s tangling with the Big Boys now In A Game Of Murder, Lidell is at Grand Central Station to pick up Barbara when a redhead throws her arms around him and tells him to kiss her A guy has been following her and she s trying to shake him Morgue Star is about prize fighters, reporters, and fight fixers Gory Hallelujah is the final selection A father thinks his daughter s suicide was unjustifiedand Lidell chases the killers to new Orleans

    A collection of short pulpy stories featuring a private eye quick with his gun and also quick with his.45 His clients tend to get killed or at least molested, so I am not sure about hiring the guy Still, these are above average with a lot of action, good conclusions, and any logical flaws are solved by fights and gunplay The one about the rich guy having an accidental death is a great short short The opening story, moves from the mob execution of a reporter to a really unexpected criminal conspiracy The final one mixes voodoo, New Orleans and vigilante justice unpleasantly You may want to skip.

    Fun but old Fun but old I love a tough guy, winner every time, but poor old Johnny is a bit too cliche But one must remember the time of writing.
