    Sin Pit Kindle Ù Sin Pit MOBI One of us would die For the other there would be Grace I didn't know what she meant to him but to me she was worth all the risk Sin Pit was one of those cult pulp paperbacks that were notoriously difficult to find But AutomatPress has come along and valiantly made it available again in e book format so I was stoked to get a crack at reading it I was disappointed though to find that the book is of a hard boiled mystery than the sleaze noir that I hoped for

    Sin Pit Kindle Ù Sin Pit MOBIThis highly collectible paperback from 1954 a decent copy runs 300 was given a primitive reissue by Gryphon Books in 2004 In the reissue Gary Lovisi hails Sin Pit as a forgotten noir masterpiece and he's or less right My only gripe is that the novel is so lean that sometimes it reads like an outline for the book than the actual thing But one could just as easily count this is a virture Hardly a word is wasted in Sin Pit and it hits all the right noir notes along the way even if it doesn't hold some of them for very long This was the only novel written by Paul S Meskil

    Sin Pit Kindle Ù Sin Pit MOBILove the gritty beginning that starts in the middle of the action Plus great circa 1954 East St Louis setting I can see why this is considered a classic of the genre the prose is lean and mean and the characters are all the opposite of the Ozzie Harriet image that the mainstream media of that era was promoting The first meeting between the cop protagonist and the femme fatale is explosive and that sets the stage for his trip to hell More police procedural than noir but all the behavior is beyond the norm and that's what makes this an exciting read In eBook format now so readily available

    Sin Pit Kindle Ù Sin Pit MOBIThis was pretty good I had some issues with the writing and it didn't really get under my skin the way the best hard boiled novels do but if you're in the mood for a classic '50s pulp this definitely fits the bill I kept thinking while I was reading it that it would have made a fantastic early '50s film noir starring either Charles McGraw or Robert Mitchum

    Sin Pit Kindle Ù Sin Pit MOBIDark dark dark even by noir standards showing the sinister underbelly of East St Louis Illinois in the 50s through the eyes of an ultra corrupt sleaze ball detective on the hunt for the killer of a young drifter girl Some of the twists can be seen coming from a mile away by anyone with even a passing familiarity with the genre but the novel was ahead of its time with its matter of fact portrayal of taboo subjects especially at the time like S M back alley abortions police brutalitycorruption etc and that makes this one worth checking out for fans of old school crime fiction Author Paul Meskil's background as a newspaper reporter most likely informed his fast paced writing st
