    ePUB William Hjortsberg Ø Falling Angel MOBI Í Ø falling mobile, angel book, Falling Angel Kindle45 stars There are two reasons I bought this book 1 I bought it at my favorite brick and mortar bookstore Bunch of Grapes because I wanted to contribute in some small way to their beautiful store 2 Because my friend Marc has been hounding me to read it for a couple of years now He was right and I now wish I had read this book soonerThis is a crime noir novel written in the 70's but actually taking place in the early 50's As such there are some racist comments and remarks as well as some slang with which I was unfamiliar For instance did you know that shamus was slang for private detective? Yeah I didn't either What puts this novel in the dark fiction category was the voodoo and Satanic worship which both play a role in the plotSpeaking of which the plot was excellent It got a little complicated but I never lost my way The story was also peppered with a bit of dry humor which I always enjoy Going into the last chapters I

    ePUB William Hjortsberg Ø Falling Angel MOBI Í Ø falling mobile, angel book, Falling Angel KindleFirst published in 1978 this is a novel that combines a fairly traditional hard boiled detective story with supernatural horror elements In brief I enjoyed the hard boiled side of the story the supernatural parts not so muchThe story is set in 1959 New York City PI Harry Angel is hired by a myster

    ePUB William Hjortsberg Ø Falling Angel MOBI Í Ø falling mobile, angel book, Falling Angel KindleAn entertaining read but very heavy on the foreshadowing Everything that happened I was able to predict from hints in the first couple chapters I would not therefore recommend this as a mystery but if you want a noir about doomed people in NY City you may enjoy itThe obviousness of the plot and the literary devices did make it extra amusing that my copy was annotated by someone who pointed out all the most obvious things

    ePUB William Hjortsberg Ø Falling Angel MOBI Í Ø falling mobile, angel book, Falling Angel KindleHjortsberg has given us readers a great gift with this book It is a nineteen fifties style hardboiled detective novel with elements of mysticism madness voodoo and black magic thrown in It is an evenly paced novel that really takes off in the second half It sort of combines themes from hardboiled pulp fiction with seventies era horror movies It takes the reader back to post world war two in a land of jazz and women and seedy haunts on Broadway and takes the reader through the funhouse carnival that was Coney Island Hir

    ePUB William Hjortsberg Ø Falling Angel MOBI Í Ø falling mobile, angel book, Falling Angel KindleI really liked this book It starts out as a typical detective yarn stereotypical even? that spins itself into an occult tale of voodoo and satanism The detective Harry Angel agrees to search for and find Johnny Favorite a popular singer that made the circuit prior to World War IIAngel interviews a cast of characters and the story seems to take on a run of the mill interview and look for loopholes in the story plot The occasional gruesome murder that seems to dog Angel keeps the story moving and produces an edginesstension which made me wonder when something would jump out nextThe first half of the book seemed to move slowly but once the occult aspects of the case began to appear the mystery itself contributed to the tension plot I began to suspect everyone Angel's Columbo like attitude serves as a nice counterpoint to many

    ePUB William Hjortsberg Ø Falling Angel MOBI Í Ø falling mobile, angel book, Falling Angel KindleThis is a crime noir hardboiled detective horror novel first published in 1978 This type of book grabs my intention immediately First the genre of horror added to a genre I don’t read Second it’s written decades ago in the late 70’s Thirdly a lot of good reviewsI have never seen the movie Angel Heart 1987 which is based on this book so I went in with very little knowledge of what happens I want to watch the movie nowThe story is set in 1959 in New York City as PI Harry Angel is hired to find a former popular singer named Johnny Favourite As Angel investigates this case the history and background gets deeper and not at all straight forward Murders take place of those involved and the story creeps into voodoo black mass devil worship satanic rituals and the occultThe writing is lean and mean and the locations described help to place the
