    I was leaning to 4 stars, but the suspenseful ending was just the type I m a sucker for, so I gave A BULLET FOR CINDERELLA 5 stars I ve read perhaps a dozen of the early John D MacDonald novels, and for my money, they represent his top form writing The Travis McGee titles are very fine, but I remain a bigger fan of JDM s pre Travis fiction JDM does a nifty job of setting up the romance triangle, including the dark haired femme fatale A BULLET FOR CINDERELLA was published in 1955, so ...

    I had never read any John D.Macdonald books before seeing this 1955 one available at Gutenberg The title and cover caught my eye I was prepared for a pulp adventure, something easy to read with lots of tense situations, but before I got started on the book I thought it would be nothing really out of the ordinary.Apologies to Mr MacDonald for my early judging, because I ended up being surprised at the depth in this story Our hero Tal Howard is trying to adjust to life after being held prisone I had never read any John D.Macdonald books before seeing this 1955 one available at Gutenberg The title and cover caught my eye I was prepared for a pulp adventure, something easy to read with lots of tense situations, but before I got started on the book I thought it wou...

    Hadn t read this one in a long, long time but quickly realized this had been one of my favorites growing up Started reading this one about 9pm and didn t put it down until I finished it More of a mystery in it s structure but completely drenched in 1950s noir themes You have a burnt out Korean war vet who nearly died in a North Korean prison camp and who s lost all meaning in his life Except to head back to the home town of a frie...
