    PDF Green Ice PDF À Ç nuiun.de Ç green kindle, Green Ice PDFClassic crime novel I got for cheap It's of decent historical interest if you like me enjoy noir novels it's cool to read one of the originals And there's great tough guy dialogue and turns of phrase throughout And the plot is so ridiculously convoluted that I really couldn't follow it all that closely Something about emeralds that somebody had or possibly nobody had and that lots of people get killed over Never uite sure who did the killing or why but it's a decent enough ride and the climactic scene is brilliantly cinematic so much so that I'm pretty sure it was ripped off in a movie Maybe Godfather II? About as much misogyny as you'd expect in this kind of book from this era and somewhat less racism Which isn't to say none just less than I was bracing myself for Of mostly historical interest and definitely not worth picking up if you're not already a fan of noir novels

    PDF Green Ice PDF À Ç nuiun.de Ç green kindle, Green Ice PDFReading this novel is like treading water fun at first but mostly exhausting and futile This is the first novel to my knowledge that I've given one starThe story follows Mal Ourney after a two year stretch in prison Mal is released and plans on cleaning up the big guys in town who exploit the small time crooks But word of his plans have gotten out and his friends start dropping dead all connected with some South American emeraldsMy problem with this novel is that it's a terribly over complicated story that’s too hard to follow while the characters themselves just aren't interesting enough to care about in the first place Where's my motivation? The course of events is never entirely clear and they get told and re told in truths and half truths by everyone Ourney encountersIt became humorous that every time
