50. Journey Into Terror by Peter Rabe

Journey into Terror picture


The cover and back blurb of this book promised some serious hard-boiled brutality. It started out in a very dark place but never quite reached the depths I feared and desired. It did a good job of capturing a couple of lost women and the world they inhabit, but Rabe ultimately goes too easy on his protagonist (not something he usually did). Maybe he was having a good week or so when he wrote this one.

Have you read Rabe's Anatomy of a Killer? If not, that is one you keep an look out for. The main character is stone cold awesome.

congratulations on reaching 50 this year. An inspiration to us all.

Happy New Year!
