Annotation: Craig Rice and Ed McBain The April Robin Murders One The water in the oblong swimming pool of the Skylight Motel was that brilliant blue-green color Bingo Riggs had seen pictured in magazines, but had never quite believed. Yet here it was, the same delicious but probably fraudulent blue of the illustrations, and here he was beside it, comfortably reclining on a wheeled mattress-and-wicker affair which someone had informed him was a loafer-lounge - and this, at last, was Hollywood. Ed McBain was an American author and screenwriter. Hardcover Paperback Kindle. He was born in October 1926 and passed away in July 2005, at the honorable age of seventy-eight. He was born under the name Salvatore Albert Lombino, however he legally changed his name in 1952 to Evan Hunter. This is where we was given the chance to work with some very important authors of that time, as well as where he wrote and published his first short story, entitled Welcome Martians Throughout his life, McBain had three sons, Richard, Mark and Ted.

I have been re-reading some of the old classics and now I am ready to review them. Craig Rice did not have a great life: she had suicidal attempts and many other problems, but oh, brother, could she write great screwball mysteries! Aside from her Malone, and the Justuses mysteries, she wrote three books of Bingo Riggs and Handsome Kusack. The first is a masterpiece, The Thursday Turkey Murders, the second The Sunday Pigeon Murders can only be described as good, probably a case of writer's cramps.
The third, the one under discussion here is The April Robin Murders, which was finished by Ed McBain, remember his 87th Precinct Mysteries, is a wonderful example of the old fashioned screwball and more: a really puzzling mystery.
Now they are in Hollywood and both the writers, it is difficult to separate them, (but Mr. McBain's polished prose more than Ms. Rice's)shines through) give a great description of the town and the ambiance. The April Robins mansion and the people around are real. No, not the Chandler kind but Ms. Rice imbued them with real charm and wit:Mr. Bulong, and the lawyer, Arthur Schlee and others appear genuine. The mystery is vintage Golden Age- alas, the end in 1958 was near. The writing is crisp, the mystery is enjoyable and as usual with Ms. Rice, the ending does not always live up to the roller coaster ride before.
For Craig Rice fans, don't miss it.

There is nobody like Craig Rice. And her books are liked by nearly everyone who reads them. They are clever, witty and suspenseful. Ed McBain is the author of the outstanding 87th Precinct series. To have them together is bliss.

Pretty much what the title and dust Jacket imply but
seen through the eyes of two young Hollywood dreamers, Bingo, a natural entrepreneur,
and Handsome, naturally attracting beautiful women.
Seeking success and adventure as it could only be found in Hollywood,
they stumble across it so well; considering they start out with
only photographic equipment to sell photos to tourist.

Thanks to one of those guys on a corner that sell maps to Hollywood,
they do wound up in this great old Hollywood mansion,
which not only has an old Hollywood legend attached to it but
current strange happenings as well.

Fun reading to be there with them in this early Hollywood style mansion, sleeping
in the cavernous living room on a davenport, with an elderly maid running around in there somewhere,
and former hollywood stars as neighbors.

A big part of the story's charm is the usual eccentric and very human types, with quirks and foilbles,
Craig Rice (Georgiana Ann Craig) peopled her novels with, like police detectives Perroni and Hendenfelder
"That's the way things are because that's the way things are."
and I suppose Ed McBain tryed to immitate her style when she died
3/4 through it and he finished it for her, but his stories are more tough detective type.
