Talmage Powell – With a Madman Behind Me (1961)


Vintage Silver Age Mystery

Date Finished: October 9, 2016

Well, I’ve fallen behind again in posting. And in reading. With a Madman Behind Me is the third Ed Rivers novel from Talmage Powell. Here he investigates a two deaths related through some smut films. Supposedly a homicidal maniac is involved, though he disappears for most of the book. Disappointingly, the one non-smut character is implicated. Not much characterizations beyond Rivers, though it moves fairly well. Still, could have been more. That seems to be my common complaint with these. Three out of five.
