Blonde Baggage

Author: Holland, Marty
Publisher: Novel Library (1950)
Binding: Paperback
Number: 45
Synopsis: Original title: Fallen Angel, 1945.
The set-up is classic noir: Anti-hero wanders into small California town, hooks up with femme fatale, plots to swindle local old maid (who, of course, is not actually that old) out of her recently inherited $10,000. From there the plot drifts a bit toward whodunnit territory, and the resolution is too dues ex machina not to be disappointing.
