Review of Red Planet Noir, the new retro Sci-Fi detective novel by D.B. Grady

The book section of Baton Rouge’s Advocate newspaper has a largely positive review of Red Planet Noir (Brown Street Press, 2009), the new retro science fiction novel written by D.B. Grady. A hard-boiled detective tale penned in the pulp tradition of the 1930s, Red Planet Noir is “a Raymond Chandler mystery in a Robert Heinlein world.” The Advocate's review concludes, in part, “Grady could use a better editor, but his writing is mostly sound and the plot of Red Planet Noir is engrossing. His characters are colorful and outrageous but believable."
