A Nick Valentine short story.

Reviews of Valentine in Paris by James Davis

Nora Lee reviewed on Dec. 28, 2011

About 8,500 words of this is a complete short story. The main character is a tough ex-British serviceman in 1931 France. Writing is very good, as is editing with only very minor issues. I only have one issue with continuity; a man is tied to a chair and then jumps up and runs. Author's oversight but a fairly serious one that needs to be fixed. The remaining 5,000 or so words is an exert for another book the author is selling. But since the short story is a complete story I won't ding the author for including the exert, which I didn't bother to read. I recommend work in this series by this author and give the short story a 4.5 to 5.0 even with the single flaw.

A well crafter short story thriller that really takes you back in time. The anti-hero Nick is a dark and brooding character - the way I like them! Reminds me of settling down to a great b+w film on a rainy afternoon.

Great 1930s set story with a noir feel to it as a disgraced British spy is sent to Paris on an unofficial mission that goes bad.
