Hard Cash (Jack Barnett) by Mike Dennis

I'm always pleased when another PI writer comes out with a novelette. I think the format suits the PI story very well and Mike Dennis proves it with his second Jack Barnett story.
The ex-PI is handed an envelope with a lot of cash by a dying man, victim of a hit-and-run. He could use the money, but as all good knight errants do he decided to go ahead and do the right thing. Too bad that usually involves beatings by tough thugs.
A nice, compact traditional PI  story in a great package.

Mike's good at this kind of story. Adding to my TBR list.
