Today’s Pulp Purchase: The April Robin Murders
That is “April Robin” depicted. She’s outstanding in her field.
Really, a splendid and hilarious book, with the unwitting detectives Bingo Riggs and Handsome Kusak, stumbling through Hollywood and over bodies. Handsome Kusak has a photographic memory for things he’s read in magazines and is otherwise apparently dimmer than his easily-duped, entrepreneurial associate Bingo.
The bookseller admonished me to make sure to read this one because she knew I was buying it for the cover. She was right. I’m really enjoying it.
You totally can tell a book by its cover if you’re just interested in the cover itself alone though
