Three To Kill
City Lights Noir
Translated by Donald Nicholson-Smith
"A social satire cum suspense equally interested in dissecting everyday banalities and manufacturing thrills. Writing with economy, deadpan irony, and an eye for devastating detail, Manchette spins pulp fiction into literature." - from the Starred Review in Kirkus Reviews
"Backed by a tremendous European reputation, one of the stars of Gallimard's Serie Noire comes to America with a lean thriller, in a brilliant new translation. . . . Manchette is a must for the reading lists of all noir fans." - Publishers Weekly
The Complete Review
A very good bit of noir, and an entertaining quick read.
