synopsis

In this short story, Harry's a blackjack dealer at the Flamingo in Las Vegas. The kind of guy you'd never notice. Ordinary-looking, inconspicuous, practically invisible. Lives in a little apartment behind the hotel. Been working graveyard shift for twelve years now. Got no life of any consequence.
But one night Petra sits down at his table, and then...

Until I began reading Mike Dennis’ work, I never really got too into noir fiction, but I most definitely a fan now.  Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Eyes is a great story that takes the “average guy meets a femme fatale” plot and gives it a twist and a gripping story.  Harry is just a normal guy, until his femme fatale Petra walks into his life.  A short story it may be, but it doesn’t lack for anything, including a twist that I didn’t see coming.

If you like noir fiction, definitely pick this up, and others by the author.
