Very fine writing by authors previously unknown to me. A must read! includes detailed author biographies, and reference notes. Interesting peek into the 1940's.
Read "In a Lonely Place" only.
Liked the slow, steady build of character complexity and suspense. Made for a real page turner. I'm a D. B. Hughes fan now.
"In a Lonely Place" - Recently I saw the Humphrey Bogart film “In a Lonely Place,” which was loosely inspired by the Dorothy B. Hughes novel of the same name. Reviews of both explained that the two works were quite different leading me to read the novel and compare the two works. I found that the novel was quite different. The film changed the author to screenwriter trying to make a comeback after several failures. Nicolas Ray, the director of the film, used it to critique the bullying of the industry on the screenwriters. The novel differs in that feminist Hughes refuses at every turn to blame the murderer’s complexes on his mother.
