His nose was buried in the comic book and he was off in a private world inhabited by Batman, Robin and the Joker. I started the car and drove away feeling more like the Joker than Batman. I took Second Avenue downtown and headed for Fifty-first Street-the address Jack Enright had given me-111 East Fifty-first Street.
This book is definitely early Lawrence Block. Ed London, a New York private investigator gets involved in a sticky situation as a family favor. He keeps getting threatened and beat up and can't even figure out why. It's an interesting story with a few twists. Published in 1961, this book is written in the classic Noir style.

Block is one of the best!" - - Washington Post ( Washington Post, DC ). Product Description. I took a book from the bookcase and sat down with it. I read three pages, looked up suddenly and realized I didn’t remember a word that I’d read. I put the book back on the shelf and poured more cognac.
Coward's Kiss (2003). About book: Another Lawrence Block winner (are there any losers?) Called to get rid of a body by his friend Jack Enright (who happens to be married to his sister,) . Ed London retrieves the body from Jack’s love-nest and dumps it in the park. I didn't like the book at first, because pf the way it was written and because of the writing style. Then I realized this book must be quite old as the ages of the people in the book just wouldn't have matched up. I looked it up and realized it was first published in 1961. That explains a lot, like the excessive consumption of alcohol, the constant smoking, the overall attitude toward women and people of colour.
Block rewrote the book, changing Roy to Ed and Markham to London, and Gold Medal published the book with the unfortunate title of Death Pulls a Doublecross.
