I Love Carson Reno
I love Carson Reno. Lack of Candor by Gerald W. Darnell is a fast-paced adventure with private investigator Carson Reno in the driver’s seat. It’s set in the 60s in Memphis, Tennessee, and has all the thrills and chills of a Mickey Spillane or Mike Hammer tale. Great characters. Great plot. Great storytelling. Now, I’m off to read another Carson Reno.
