One thought on “The Damned Don't Die: A Novel

  1. Steven

    Nisbet s first novel, published in 1981, is in the tradition of the hard boiled detective novel, although the prose is anything but lean Martin Windrow is an ex cop turned private detective, and when we meet him he is perusing a murder scene with a cop friend Windrow was there to deliver divorce papers for a client, a job that he thought would be easier than the last one, which has him nursing several wounds from a beating stitches in his cheek and his butt, plus a broken rib or two But before t [...]

    Ho comprato questo libro, finito ieri, per tre motivi copertina promettente, prezzo competitivo, incipit davvero interessante Beh, direi che sono le uniche cose positive di questo thriller lo definiscono cos , ma non sono molto d accordo di circa duecento pagine Tra un detective privato confezionato con gli ingredienti base dello stereotipo, personaggi primari e secondari privi di spessore e una trama imperniata sul sesso degradato, uno stile sciatto che tenta di recuperare o di allungare il bro [...]

    An interesting take on noir A web of lovers, deceit and sexual taboos Just as reading the shocking taboos of 30 s and 40 s sometimes make me chuckle, the shock value here felt quaint Windrow, the PI with a burden, in this case burdened by actually being physically wounded throughout the story which was cute Did miss seeing the spiral up close it happens, it s interesting s over there.The book changes pace quite a bit From the hard boiled set up, to a lighter comic feel, long narrative section, t [...]

    Well that one sentence I always wanted to skin a women made me think this novel was going to be told through the eyes of the killer Well I was wrong and disappointed I couldn t really get that into this novel after that but I forced myself to finish it without comprehending much of it A little twisted but I wasn t in total awe.

  6. Monica Co

    I did not like this noir, with a contorted plot and unrealistic characters, whose many oddities are not well explained and motivated The writing style does not flow smoothly, and at the end it looks like an unfinished work.

  7. Mike

    The best writer of noir out there Gritty realism and characters with San Francisco as the backdrop for all kinds of carnal and criminal mayhem.
