    The Heat's On eBook Ô The Heat's Kindle - heat's mobile, The Heat's epub, The Heat's On PDF/EPUBBooks like this are one good reason not to peruse the bestseller list for something to read The prose is tight with just enough detail to give the reader a flavor but not interfere with the paceWith characters named Coffin Ed Grave Digger and Pinky a decent writer has to get out of the way of the story which is what Himes did The backdrop is 1950s Harlem and Himes had enough experience with crime to know what he was writing aboutThe book is fast paced easy on the eyes interesting from th

    The Heat's On eBook Ô The Heat's Kindle - heat's mobile, The Heat's epub, The Heat's On PDF/EPUBThis book continues Himes' tradition of offbeat dangerous characters Sister Heavenly leads this cast of drug dealers charlatans and murderers Anything to get the money the drugs the treasure mapThis time Gravedigger Jones takes a bullet gets laid up in the hospital and eventually slips into a coma Coffin Ed Johnson is on the case alone Oh I forgot to mention that their badges were revoked so while tracking the suspects they were really working as vigilantes Does Coffin Ed step away from the case? Hell no His partner best

    The Heat's On eBook Ô The Heat's Kindle - heat's mobile, The Heat's epub, The Heat's On PDF/EPUBThis sixth outing for Harlem police detectives Coffin Ed and Gravedigger Jones opens with a drug dealing dwarf attempting to dissuade and African American albino giant from turning in a false fire alarm at a swanky apartment building on Riverside Drive It is 122 AM The bodies start piling up within the hourAs in all of Himes’ crime series the plot escalates over the next couple of days He knows how to pull this stuff off but this time out he falls into the trap of having to gather surviving characters together in a final scene and have someone explain what’s been going on Well if it was good enough for Sherlock HolmesOne valuable lesson learned When dealing with a vial of nitroglycerin you need to read the instructions

    The Heat's On eBook Ô The Heat's Kindle - heat's mobile, The Heat's epub, The Heat's On PDF/EPUBWhen Grave Digger Jones gets dropped with a gunman’s bullet Coffin Ed brings savage retribution to Harlem The most conventionally plotted of these and probably not surprisingly my least favorite Not to say that it’s bad it’s not bad at all it’s good it’s just not as good as the others Still a ton of weird fabulous throw away stuff about Albino ex boxers and viciously immoral geriatric heroin dealers Library but you know I’d keep it because I want an entire collection of Himes’s stuff at some point

    The Heat's On eBook Ô The Heat's Kindle - heat's mobile, The Heat's epub, The Heat's On PDF/EPUBI have read the first 5 books in this series and rated them between 3 and 4 stars The reason I didn't give a higher rating is because I think Himes' writing style is a little choppy and awkward But his strong point is creating memorable characters that he puts in amazing situations in the crime world of Harlem in the 50's Number 5 All Shot Up was the high point so far But this novel was a big disappointment It didn't have the usual lunacy surreal characters and bizarre and often very funny events that made the earlier novels so enjoyable Even the usual byplay and repartee between Gravedigger and Coffin Ed fell flat Ed's reaction to the death hoax at the end was very 2 dimensional and added little to the story I did read the next book in line Cotton Comes to Harlem a

    The Heat's On eBook Ô The Heat's Kindle - heat's mobile, The Heat's epub, The Heat's On PDF/EPUBI read a number of Chester Himes' novels before I really caught on to how brilliant a humorist he is This is the novel where his hu revealed itself Some of the scenes pitched with violence and pathos had a heightened surrealism that reminded me of Magritte than Raymond Chandler even though as a murderdetective writer Himes is up there with the best It also helps that I happen to live blocks from where a lot of the action takes place in this novel and after reading it it gave the whole area a fresh glaze

    The Heat's On eBook Ô The Heat's Kindle - heat's mobile, The Heat's epub, The Heat's On PDF/EPUBChester Himes is an amazing storyteller Outside of the few times where the wordplay and descriptions felt excessive or sloppy this was a perfect novella His writing takes you back to Harlem in the 1950s or he at least convinces you that you have The brutality of law enforcement and the manner in which he describes African American is a bit jarring Gravedigger and Coffin Ed seem like the story's mediators because the supposed villain is far interesting I felt that way with another of his stories With this book sit back and enjoy the ride If you are searching for your next captivating read visit my website I am an author looking for an audience
