The Big Man's Daughter by Gordon McAlpine

The Big Man’s Daughter (as Owen Fitzstephen)

Posted in , , ,

Damn you, Fitzstephen! You’ve done it again!

It may not be a detective novel, or even a mystery, really, but it’s a heady brew all the same; a ballsy, carefully assembled and psychologically sharp read that tears into the guts of what it’s like to be young, scared and not sure where you’re going. Or where exactly you’ve been.

If you’re a Hammett fan, you’re going to love this.
