Jim Hart has created a powerful rendering of the golden era of the private eye story in his new novel, A Tom Collins to Go. The work chronicles the adventures of private eye Harry Parker who works in the Big Apple back in the days when it was still Gotham City. Harry drinks too much, laments his failed marriage, longs for his ex and scratches out a living as a hardscrabble PI. Which all lends to his ‘don’t give a damn’ demeanor and what makes him so lovable.
I believe that the skillful combination of all of these elements will give readers of this genre exactly what they are looking for.
