Ride the Pink Horse

Dorothy B. Hughes


Sailor, a hood from Chicago, steps off a bus in a small, barren region city. he's searching for a person, his boss, 'Sen' - a crooked, 'weasel-faced' Senator, who has arrange the homicide of his filthy rich spouse and made it appear like a bungled theft. Sailor is the single one that can finger Sen for the crime, and he intends to make the senator pay a hefty sum for his silence. In a hypnotic sort that's natural, unsentimental noir, Hughes builds pressure relentlessly and the fates of Sailor and Sen are performed out opposed to the expanding fervour of the town's festivities.
