Today is the final day of Day of the Dolls. All this week I have highlighted each day one or two noir titles from the late 1940's to the early 1960's.
Dead Dolls Don't Talk
by Day Keene
He figured her for just another one night stand...until he found her still there in the morning - murdered.
A juror who learns the hard way what it means to find yourself on the wrong side of the law. Hours after returning a verdict of “guilty” in a murder case, Doc Hart wakes up next to the condemned man’s wife…dead wife. On the run and wanted for murder, Hart’s only friend is Gerta, the young woman from his shop whose affections he turned down in the past. Together, the two of them head to Mexico to unravel an increasingly complicated scheme that looks harder and harder to prove.
Written by Gunnar Hjerstedt, (1904-1969)
