bring him back dead Reviews
If you like 1950s pulp fiction, than this is one you need to read. The perfect balance of excitement, sex, and danger, with better-than-average character development and a "you see it right before it happens" twist. Nicely done Louisiana setting as well. Highly recommended.
A deputy sheriff tries desperately to try to figure who's trying to kill him before he gets sent to the electric chair for a crime he didn't commit. If Day Keene ever wrote a bad novel, I have yet to read it.
Deputy Sheriff Latour patrolled a small town on the bayou, a town named "French Bayou." It was a "wide open" town and he may have been the only honest man left there. There were girls and gambling and liquor everywhere. Latour had married a Russian girl when he was serving in the Far East. Probably a mistake to bring her back. She latched onto him because she thought he was going to be rich and he thought he'd be rich, too. Her family had once been of nobility and he promised her the world. His land, however, had no oil. It was the only dry patch around. They could barely stand each other now. One day, LaTour takes an old drunk and the drunk's pretty 17 year old redheaded wife Rita home. He wakes up surrounded by deputies and Rita positively identifies him as the man who brutally raped her and shot her husband. Everyone in town thinks he did it and did the same thing to three other girls. Another pulp story about an innocent man on the run.It's a great story told well. It doesn't matter if the reader has all the clues before the end. What matters is that you get the sense of the small town in the bayou, the backwoods folk, and how much trouble it is to be decent in this rough and lonely world. I really enjoyed this story.
