Three-Way Split -- Gil Brewer

Ed Gorman reviewed this one the other day, so I pulled the book off the shelf to re-read it. The only thing I have to add to Ed's comments is that the book is only 128 pages long. That's right. 128 pages. And there's more story there than you'll find in a lot of the current 400+ page doorstops, if you ask me, which I realize you didn't. Straightforward, clear-eyed storytelling, no wasted words, just what you'd expect from a classic Gold Medal novel. Great stuff.
