by Lawrence Block
Good early Lawrence Block book. Lot's of nice twists and other great hardboiled plot elements. But though Markham was already a well-established character, YOU COULD CALL IT MURDER is a Lawrence Block novel through and through.
Good early Lawrence Block book. Nothing in these pages would feel the least out of place in his other detective novels from that same year, such as COWARD'S KISS and GRIFTER'S GAME. The story is also too racy for TV during that period, in that the whole mystery centers on pornographic photos being used for blackmail because you'd never resist," I never got the sense Block was toning himself down any.
In 1961, Lawrence Block was living in New York and earning a living writing Midcentury Erotica and crime fiction. But that left Block owing Belmont a book. He’d just sold his first book under his own name, Grifter’s Game, to Gold Medal Books. They insisted on calling it Mona, but the original title’s been restored by Hard Case Crime. You Could Call It Murder is what he wrote for them, and it turned out fairly nicely as well, but his agent sent it to Belmont all the same, where they published it as Markham: The Case of the Pornographic Photos. By the time it came out-surprise surprise-the TV series was canceled. Is everything clear?

Nor all your piety and wit. Can call it back to cancel half a line
Nor all your piety and wit. Can call it back to cancel half a line. Nor all your tears wash out a word of it. I had tried hard to blame myself for Estrellita Rivera, but in a certain sense it wouldnt stick. I could have done nothing, and then Henry Prager would not have wound up in a body bag. But there is a difference between murder and other crimes, and the world is a worse place for the murderers it allows to walk unpunished, as Henry Prager would have walked had I done nothing. There should have been another way. Just as the bullet should not have ricocheted into a little girls eye. And try telling all that to the moving finger. Mass was still going on when I left.
