Get a Load of This by James Hadley Chase (Epub)

My dear Cherry,

Some time ago you warned me against writing short stories. You stressed that the public didn't like them, and that I would be heading for a big flop if I persisted. Your views have always proved sound, so I've laid off until now. My present activities don't permit me to tackle a full-length novel, but as I have a number of situations up my sleeve I have been tempted to turn them into shorts. Have a little flutter on the book. Personally, I think it'll go. Not because it is better written than those which have flopped, but because the stories have got enough dynamite in them to make the average guy forget the blackout and the blitz--which, after all, is what we all want to do at this moment.

Anyway, here's the manuscript, and when you're not too busy--Get a load of this!

Requiem Des Blondes (James Hadley Chase) (French Edition) by James Hadley Chase (Epub)

Tu vas te tirer d'ici et me faire le plaisir de ne plus y remettre les pieds, dit le costaud en m'agrippant par le gilet. On n'a pas besoin de vermines dans ton genre pour venir nous espionner.

T'es une vraie frangine, dis-je en l'aidant se relever. Alors... Si on ne peut plus plaisanter...
