Misadventure

(2010)
A novel by

 
 
Jack Hopkins, veteran of the first Gulf War, doesn't like what he does for a living, but luckily he has two new job offers - Darlene Hunt wants to pay him ten million dollars to kill her husband, and her husband wants to hire him to kill Darlene Hunt. Before he can figure out whom to work for, though, the dead bodies have already started piling up. The second novel from Millard Kaufman - the critically acclaimed nonagenarian author, Oscar-nominated screenwriter, and World War II Marine - Misadventure is a serpentine murder mystery set against a backdrop of LA real-estate schemes, ruby-wearing femmes fatale, and more love triangles than any one man should attempt to get into. Written with a style and flair that's reminiscent of Chinatown by way of the Coen Brothers, it's an unforgettable addition to the genre - a noir par excellence.
