Clockwise counting 64/50: E Howard Hunt - House Dick (1961) Howard Hunt was the former CIA spook who organized the Watergate break-in that lead to the downfall of Nixon. He also had a career as a crime fiction writer. House Dick is a typical hard-boiled story in the Mickey Spillane vein. Hotel detective Peter Novak swigs bourbon, charms the dames and solves both a murder and a jewel theft. A decent read if you have nothing else to do, hardly great art though.
