BLUE CITY. Kenneth Millar.


New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1947. Octavo, cloth. First edition. The author's third novel. "The texture of the world in this novel is reminiscent of Dashiell Hammett's fiction, though its sensibility and imagery show the influence of Raymond Chandler as well...The mixture of Hammett's harsh world of political corruption and Chandler's sensual decadence are both apparent here." - Pederson (ed.): The St. James Guide to Crime and Mystery Writers (4th ed.), pp. 667-678. Filmed in 1986 with Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy and David Caruso. Hubin, p. 573.
