06.12.14 I've had a pile of Hard Case Crime books laying around for years now and I always tell myself that I'm going to blast through them some day but never do. Well, it felt like it took me extra long to finish my last book and I didn't have anything burning its way to the top of my queue so I figured this was finally a good time to start. This was written in post-war 40s and takes place in South America, mostly Peru around lake Titicaca, and concerns an ex-pat who falls into possession of some ancient Incan manuscript leading to buried treasure of gold. It's kind of everything I wanted this series to be: tough guys, mysterious women, exotic locales, muscular plots, and lots of crime and adventure. I really liked it and look forward to continuing, maybe finding a few new authors to track down. It took me longer than I thought it would but I suspect that's because I was savoring it (not to mention I've been very busy lately). Good
