Fifty Two Pickup Read ☆ 109 Ail ensues in the shape of three masked men But the thugs reckon without his desire for reveng I ve gotten really into genre lately which must surprise those who ve heard me pontificate so much on Plato and on Nazis Well actually not into genre so much as just into crimemysteryspy novels I still hate Sci Fi despite my somewhat heroic efforts to read a mass of it a year or so back Maybe it s an age thingBut perhaps it s not so surprising after all Many years ago I learned to my great astonishment that my professor was an avid reader of mystery novels I don t know whom he read he was a man of high culture and I think he considered Borges whom he had met a mystery writer but I do know that he mentioned Agatha Christie because as he put it solving crimes is a lot like solving for a problem in philology piecing together tantalizing and always incomplete clues until the necessary and confirmable result emergesOf course that presupposes that the crime story is well handled And this one unfortunately strictly from a craft point of view is mediocre This was one of his earliest non westerns apparently and it seems that he just didn t have his MoJo yet After reading Swag at any rate it was a let down For Swag is superbBut 52 was a let down in a way that is highly instructive The writing is so bad relatively speaking by which I mean that the plotting pacing the way dialogue and characters are all handled shows that the young writer made a host of identifiable and specifiable mistakes so bad in fact that the careful reader can pick out all the blunders like a surgeon pulling splinters of shattered wood out of the body of a corpse Thus by making a careful analysis of the strengths of Swag and the writing flubs in 52 a budding writer would find hisherself in a highly instructive laboratory for one of the best ways to learn any craft is by making a close examination not of the successful as genius is often unrepeatable but of failures and second rate effortsSo the third star goes to the pedagogical value of this text The book itself being one I didn t like

Fifty Two Pickup Read ☆ 109 Mitchell in his forties is a self made man who owns a factory in Detroit and has been happily We picked the wrong guy Leo Frank said That s the whole thing We picked the wrong fucking guy They want Harry s moneyHarry Mitchell did everything that he was supposed to do He was a World War Two ace fighter pilot who came back from the war and started his own manufacturing company that employs hundreds of people He married well His wife Barbara keeps herself in shape with jogging and playing tennis and is still a very attractive women Everything was fine until Harry met CynthiaCiniCinSinHe wasn t looking for a girl it just kind of happened She wasn t even as good in bed as Barbara but she was young and fun Feeling young was something Harry had been missing This was not like Harry When he goes over to see her and finds the cold barrel of a long pistol stuck in his neck he realizes that whatever pleasure he had received from knocking boots with a girl half his age was about to be eclipsed by embarrassment and financial blackmail They have a tape The problem is they have the wrong guy Harry isn t the type of guy who is going to go all weak in the knees He d faced the prospect of death several thousand feet up in the air during the war He d spent months thinking each day was going to be his last day He is a thinker A man who calculates all the angles He can weigh the pain and decide if he can take it They want 105000 a year for as long as they want it That is just simply unacceptable If he agreed to terms like that he wouldn t be Harry Mitchell any There are three men putting the sueeze on Harry but the main guy Alan Raimy is probably one of the most despicable villains I ve ever come across in literature In the movie of the same title from 1986 John Glover plays the roleWhen he smiled he made me shiver I don t know what this fucking world is coming to You honestly sincerely tell the guy how it is and the mother doesn t believe you They raise the stakes They frame Harry for murder He bends but he doesn t break They kidnap his wife and believe me putting a woman in the hands of Alan Raimy is not just kidnapping Harry makes a deal but the whole time he is thinking about how he might fold his cards and fold again but by the end of the night he is going to win the game John Glover is Alan RaimyRoy Scheider plays Harry Mitchell in the movie and it is probably his best role outside of Jaws Ann Margret plays his wife Barbara and though she isn t the little scamp we remember in Viva Las Vegas any she has blossomed into a full bodied vivacious woman The movie and the book are similar but there are certainly hardboiled aspects at play in the book that director John Frankenheimer shied away from in the movie This is vintage El Leonard and if you choose to read this book you just won t be able to escape the experience unsullied If you like hardboiled noir that will leave a little grit in your teeth a knot on the back of your head and a powerful thirst for something amber and wet then this is the book for you If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
