The Adjustment, by Scott Phillips
(Counterpoint, $25.00, 9781582437309)
“Wayne Ogden has returned home from WWII, working as a caretaker and procurer for his debauched boss, while itching for the same action he had as a shady supply sergeant. It doesn’t take long before he gets involved in blackmail, pornography, and murder even as he receives a bunch of mysterious letters from someone aware of his criminal past. Playing fast and loose with the dark side of the ‘Greatest Generation,’ Scott Phillips once again creates a tight, funny noir that’s rich in character, and makes the profane sacred.” — Scott Montgomery, Book People, Austin, TX
