It’s been a while since I’ve featured one of MacDonald’s multi-narrator stories. This is the first edition of Cry Hard, Cry Fast, which centers around a multi-vehicle pileup. Steve Scott does his usual bang-up job of reviewing it here.

The cover is a typical pulp job by Ray Johnson. I’m not sure what the symbolism is of him grabbing her necklace (or maybe I just don’t want to know), but it’s pretty obvious where his gaze is directed.
