    1. Tony Rome was diving in thirty feet of water when he saw her. A naked blond standing on the bottom, her mouth open. Swimming closer, he saw that her feet were encased in a block of cement and there appeared to be a small slit in her ribcage just below the heart.He only got a quick look at her face before the two great whites appeared and caused him to scamper away. One chased after him as he was surfacing near his boat, the Straight Pass, and his friend Jack McComb put several bullets into it. T [...]


    2. While watching CSI, the new boss of the team (played by Ted Dansen) said it was a good book (but a so-so movie)


    3. I can't help but feel, after I have read a few of these hard-boiled crime stories, that many of the writers use the exact same plot formula. What makes this one stand out?

    4. One of the all time great hardboiled mysteries. Actually the second book in the trilogy about Miami private eye Anthony "Tony" Rome. On some editions, Tony Rome is listed as the author. This is an absolutely terrific book, one of my favorites, but I am going to direct you to the synopsis in the five star review of this novel by Randy Johnson on from February 29, 2012. I can't say it any better than that:/review/show/Check it out.


    5. Liked the movie w Frank Sinatra, Raquel Welch and Dan Blocker better. Albert writes journeyman-detective mysteries. Solid procedural, realistic plotting, but lacking panache. I think the movie was better because the actors brought the parts alive. As written, most of the story and most of the characters were pretty flat.
