The Cutie (Hard Case Crime #53)The Cutie by Donald E. Westlake

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


A Hard Case crime novel by the late great Donald Westlake. The cover is completely misleading. In this case, "the cutie" is the person who set up a hapless heroin addict for a murder. Clay is assigned by his criminal organization to investigate (the heroin addict is also a part of it). Decent twists and turns, but the main thing is Westlake's strong voice and writing. Since the book's first publication in 1960 (under the title The Mercenaries), some of the references have become dated, but the story moves along at a good clip and is entertaining.
