Mildly entertaining and "amusing" detective stories

Rotten Apple: Seven Sins, One Deadly City - Simon Dunn

Deliberately replete with all the hard-boiled detective clichés, this volume deals with Vic Malone (a New York detective) and characters associated with him. He is the best at everything: solving murders, driving, combat, seduction etc.. all in a geographically-silly New York (many of San Francisco's features are there for some reason - comedic, no doubt). A comical collection but unsubtle and, in the end, nothing special and only mildly entertaining.
