B&W – The Clues

B&W wr

It was all there in Black & White. All the Detective had to do was read the clues. Too bad his head was still pounding and the world was as fuzzy as peach hair tonic. He didn’t have time to spare. If he wanted to solve this case, he had to get past the emotional haze and think it out one step at a time. If only he could get to the crucial page, flip past all the muddled words,…. only then would he get the Bird and fly the coop with Friday’s book . Case closed. Bank account full. If only he could see it clearly,…… it was all there in Black & White.

      Thanks very much. The photo was one of those accidents. Took it quickly while double checking settings. I have been commenting on some of Ashley’s B&W posts as a series of noir narratives, so I decided to do the same for this one.
      My head is primed for the narrative tone. I’ve been reading an anthology of Noir-Hardboiled Fantasy, “Down These Strange Streets”. Lots of Chandler & Hammett references mixed with a range of fantasy elements. It includes a Charlaine Harris tale. 🙂
