Like the one previous reviewer who wrote his review on November 2, 2005, I read Joe Gores' novel "A Time of Predators" (1969) and picked up on the reference to this book, of which I now have an original copy from 1974. It's extremely difficult for me to understand why the only Amazon review written on this terrific novel was done almost eleven years ago. Joe Gores is dead now, having passed in 2011 at age 80. He was a prolific writer who composed 16 novels, over 50 short stories, and also wrote for films and 14 different television series. He wrote about "what he knew" and he was good at it, becoming only one of two authors who have won an Edgar Award in three separate categories: Best First Novel, Best Short Story, and Best TV Series Segment. He often said "I loved detective work, I truly loved it".

This novel is set in 1970's San Francisco, complete with all its warts and wonders. His main character is Neil Fargo, a hard-boiled kind of guy who smokes Pall Malls in his office and calls his secretary "Doll". As a Private Detective he takes the tough jobs and gets paid well for them. But he also is known to veer onto the wrong side of the law should the challenge and payoff be large enough. He's smart, he's tough, he's cynical, has an abrasive sense of humor, has a lot of connections, and he knows his way around town. Not much gets by him and he always has his nose in the air to sniff out his next score. And the plot is guaranteed to thicken as the story moves on.

Recently I've been reading some of the "old time detective novelists", enjoying their descriptions of the old days, the cars, the music, the language, and the racial disharmony that was so obvious then. Other writers who have caught my eye include: Lawrence Block (A Walk Among the Tombstones), George Pelecanos ( the Spiro Lucas series), and William Lashner (the Victor Carl series). All of these authors provide some "old school" novels dealing with past decades, the clothes and the idioms used, the different types of music introduced, and the brute force muscle cars on the road. These guys know how to tell a story from a different vantage point than modern writers.

So if you'd like to take a short but interesting trip into the past, Joe Gores is a great tour guide. He writes from experience and captures the pulse of the times accurately. Get on his bus. You'll enjoy the ride. Don't miss this guy.

I read this book because the intro to "A Time of Predators" mentioned it. It's from 1974 and set in SF, where Gores was a detective for a number of years. It's a one-off, about an ex-NFL P.I. involved in a heroin deal that goes bad. It's one of those 70s books where you track different groups of people and try to figure out how they're connected. To a modern reader the solution will seem pretty obvious, but even after you realize where it's headed, this book is a blast.
