#BuyThisBook: Ken Harmon's "The Fat Man" is high camp holiday noir
The Fat Man: A Tale of North Pole Noir by Ken Harmon
Recommended by Stephanie Manas, Dutton PR diva
"A hard-boiled satire, a send-up of all the great noir novels and films, mashed up with all the Christmas legends we know and love. The title is a play on the classic Dashiell Hammett novel The Thin Man, and the book is full of not only elves and Santa Claus but Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and every beloved holiday character in between. Even the murder victim gets his eye shot out by a Red Ryder BB Gun, owned of course by Ralphie from A Christmas Story."
