The Crime Stories

Title: The Collected Short Stories of Louis L'Amour Vol. 6: The Crime Stories
Author: Louis L'Amour
Publisher: Bantam
ISBN: 978-0-553-80531-4
Why Read?: For Fun
Challenges: Mystery & Suspense, 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: The title of this collection is slightly misleading. While many of the stories do deal with crime, quite a few would fall under the category of sports better (especially boxing, which is the what the cover picture portrays). Actually, my favorite story in the whole collection, "Dream Fighter", was one of the boxing stories. I also really enjoyed the noir stories featuring Kip Morgan, the title character from "Dream Fighter". Some of the other stories, though, just were not up my alley, but all were very well-written, as one would expect from an author like L'Amour.
Rating: 3 stars
