Vintage Golden Age Mystery

And the Golden Age Vintage Cover Scavenger Hunt is complete! I had two copies of this, but we’ll go with the cover for the earlier one with the jewelry.
This Peter Chambers mystery contains three novellas: Far Cry, Slaughter on Sunday, and Skip a Beat, a couple of which were originally published in Manhunt. The subject matter and plotting are fairly standard, but the dialogue is the main attraction and point. It is a little tough to get accustomed to it, just as it is when listening to Crime and Peter Chambers, but once you do it is a unique approach to the genre. If this were attached to better plotting, these would be worth more than three stars out of five.
