"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 and full of men in hats lurking in bars and street corners, train journeys taken by stealth and so much thinking ahead and thinking on the run that I was in awe of these characters' abilities! 4.4/5-Therese Scott.
