"Book lovers never go to bed alone"
Brilliant noir fiction by one of the best but often forgotten authors, Dorothy B Hughes. There were so many plot twists and turns I was riveted. Who is the gray man -innocent traveller, Gestapo, FBI or none of these things. Is he really a danger to the equally mysterious protagonist Julliet, on the run from being a potential suspect in a murder. Moving from New York to Santa Fe and set during World War II , it is full of men in hats lurking in bars and street corners, train journeys taken by stealth and so much thinking ahead and on the run that I was in awe of these characters' abilities! 4.4/5
