Less is more.Fadeout
is a 186 pages quicky, but a rather satisfying one. It's as well a mystery as a story about grief, and Hansen writes grief painfully well. Hard boiled as hard boiled can be, his laconic prose requires the reader to savour every single sentence. Maybe a bit too obsessed with what everyone is wearing and ashtray design, but apart from that very readable.
One down, eleven more to go.
