Format: Mass Market Paperback
Stephen Greenleaf and Earl Emerson are probably the two finest practitioners of the "hardboiled P.I." school currently writing. THE MILLION-DOLLAR TATTOO admirably displays Emerson's strengths: a smooth, colorful style; a complex, outrageous, but ultimately credible plot; a motley cast of well-drawn characters; an outstanding sense of pace; a terrific ear for dialogue; and well-timed humor.
Other reviews here will give you a hint about the plot, so I'll simply add that underlying all of it is the serious theme of the misuse of money and power.

I really enjoyed Snake and the aliens women. The book is fantastic! It is a must read.

This is by far the funniest book in the Thomas Black series. About page 2 I gave up laughing and went right to snorting. And the mystery was pretty darned good, too. If you only read one book by Earl Emerson (and if you stop at one, your next stop should be a shrink), this one is the "must read."

Format: Hardcover
In the typical emerson way, thomas and new wife must
find a way to clear an old freind of a murder charge.
The only thing to go on is a lame aliby "they came
from outer space so I could populate their world."
come take a read this book has more twists and
turns than southbond 405.

Sorry, not impressed Oct. 12 2006
By Love good books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was my first Earl Emerson read. The characters were likeable enough, but it just didn't get it for me. If you want some REALLY good P.I. books, try Dennis Lehane, he rocks!

not a strong story teller. Story line is weak. As the plot progresses it becomes increasingly boring and uninteresting. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
