Point Blank: Hardboiled, Noir, & Detective Fiction

Feb 21, 2018

Welcome to the lost episode. Plagued by technical problems, we are happy to finally be able to bring you episode 6. "The Real Cool Killers" by Chester Himes.

Himes was a revolutionary writer and thinker in crime fiction and was an influential contributor to 20th Century African-American fiction.

His work deserves to be better known.
