I've enjoyed quite a few Penguin60s so was pleased to find this one on the fundraising shelves at the doctors' this afternoon - they're very handy for carrying around!

From the back cover: The Snatching of Bookie Bob and Other Stories, five fast-moving, hard-boiled stories of New York life by the author of Guys and Dolls.

A strange collection of short stories:
1. The Snatching of Bookie Bob
- kidnapping isn't a particularly good combination with gambling
2. Sense of Humour
- from hot foot to scragging to sacking - none of it being my idea of fun!
3. The Bloodhounds of Broadway
- mantracking bloodhounds on the trail of a shooter on Broadway
4. It Comes Up Mud
- a cautionary tale of horseracing
5. A Very Honourable Guy
- Feet Samuels is broke, which has some interesting consequence!
