Pulp Fiction Thursday: Murder In The Navy

This week’s book cover is unexceptional with one, uh, exception: the blurb. The rave comes from Evan Hunter one of whose pen names just happened to be Richard Marsten. That’s right, he wrote a superb blurb for his own novel.

Hunter had many pen names, the best known of which was Ed McBain. In fact, Evan Hunter was a pen name that morphed into a legal name when he was 26.  He was born Salvatore Albert Lombino. I guess he always wanted to be a WASP.
