In David Goodis's bruising crime novel The Secret Squad, Corey Bradford is on the skids and on a quick trip to boozeland. He was a plainclothes cop who got caught with his hands in pockets where they didn't belong and he was pushed out the precinct door. But he was still just as fast with his mitts as he was his wits, and others took notice. The Wounded and the Slain.

Dark Passage (1946) is a novel by David Goodis which was the basis for the 1947 film noir Dark Passage. Plot Vincent Parry, wrongly convicted of murdering his wife, escapes from prison and is taken in by Irene Jansen, an artist with an interest in his case. Helped by a friendly cabbie, Parry gets a new face from a plastic surgeon, thereby enabling him to dodge the authorities and find his wife's real killer.

It’s exactly six. And now we'll have some dinner. She went into the kitchen. He could hear her moving around in there. He could hear her moving around in there e buzzer to sound again, waited for Studebaker to come up with the police. The dinner tasted fine, even though it went in through the glass straw. There was beef broth, there was the tan cream of a vegetable-beef stew, there was a butterscotch pudding thinned down to liquid. He gestured his willingness to help with the dishes. She told him to go into the other room and play.

David Goodis is one of the most admired American noir writers of the last century. In this book, first published in 1946, Vince Parry, sentenced to life imprisonment in San Quentin for the murder of his wife, escapes. He tries to find out who framed him in an attempt to prove his innocence. He is harboured by a woman he doesn't trust, he is a fugitive from justice in the depths of despair. Parry's last throw is a desperate gamble to hide his identity from the law. Filmed in 1947 by Delmer Daves at Warner Brothers and starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall - it became a classic noir movie. Goodis then worked in Hollywood for Warner Brothers but in 1950 he returned to his native Philadelphia and continued to write paperback novels about man's inexorable decline into despair. He died in obscurity in 1967.

David Goodis’s Dark Passage is most famous today because of the WB film starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Goodis sold the rights to film it for $25,000 and secured for himself immortality by doing so. To those who read, however, and especially those who enjoy a good crime noir, Goodis’s name would be known and bandied about during discussions of the genre, regardless.

Anyone familiar with the very good film based on the book knows that for the first forty minutes or so of the movie, we are in Parry’s (Bogart’s) shoes during the prison break and the ensuing escape. We never see Parry’s face during this portion of the film. Goodis’s entire novel is the equivalent of that portion of the film, the reader placed into Parry’s head, “hearing” him panic, reason out things, fight his fear and paranoia, and finally, figure out who killed his unfaithful wife and framed him for the murder. Tightly constructed and narratively claustrophobic, this is a unique narrative that won’t appeal to everyone. It is more likely to appeal to fans of the genre, and fans of the greatest writer of suspense, Cornell Woolrich. Goodis here seems to be influenced by Woolrich’s work. Parry even has an entire conversation in his head with his only friend, who has just been murdered, which is very Woolrichian.

One can almost picture Agnes Morehead as the shrill and annoying Madge Rapf, and Bacall as the lovely and lonely Irene, whose motives for helping Parry hide out at the outset, and later so that his face can heal when he has it altered, are at first unclear. They will be more ambiguous for anyone who hasn’t seen the 40s film, but that’s not many. There is loneliness here, and not just Parry’s, and there is that feeling of the little guy fighting against fate which permeated Woolrich’s work during this period. Goodis doesn’t quite reach the level of the father of noir, but this is very good, and there are moments when he comes close. A tricky and ultimately dooming confrontation with a guy known only as Studebaker for much of the book, and the color of a car, set in motion an exciting conclusion. It is here, at the end, when Goodis throws the reader a Deadline at Dawn type of lifeline that makes this a memorable read.

While the narrative style of nearly every thought in Parry’s head can become too overblown at times, at other times it’s marvelous, both cerebrally claustrophobic and entertainingly mesmerizing. This seminal noir novel will have you looking up Patavilca, Peru on your globe, and wondering…

Because Goodis seemed to be channeling Woolrich, yet didn’t quite reach that lofty plateau, this is 4.5 stars for me. But it is such a terrific read, I’m rounding up. A unique novel (unless you’ve read Woolrich), and one every fan of the noir/suspense genre must have a go at to really sample the best stuff the genre has to offer.

Vince Perry is in quite a jam. Framed for the murder of his wife, he sits in San Quentin, his freedom now gone as he figures his future. It looks none too promising:

“He couldn’t have women and he couldn’t have bright lights and he couldn’t have a fireplace. He couldn’t have streets to walk on and crowds to see. All he had here were the bars on his cell door and the realization that he would be looking at those bars for the rest of his life.”
Well, there’s always breaking out.

A man now on the run, Perry seeks a way to hide out while he tries to find the identity of the real killer. Figuring out who to trust is a game that Perry now must play.

While there are some coincidences and moments where the plot is a tad incredulous, Dark Passage is a mostly entertaining read. One thing that Goodis excels at, and that is depicting the inner turmoil and workings of his often very flawed protagonists. We see this in Dark Passage, with Perry on the run, a marked man who not only must try to evade being caught, but also internalizes life through the course of the plot. Goodis zooms in at times, takes you through Perry’s rambling thoughts in a sort of stream of conscious way. In Dark Passage, we also have a murder mystery on our hands.

I wouldn’t rank this one as high as Shoot the Piano Player, but Dark Passage is still a thoroughly engaging work with many of the Goodis staples and signature traits. He really captures the essence of a character trying to cope with a situation, and trying to pull themselves up from the depths of despair.

After reading about Goodis and reading his hard to find "The Burglar"-and really liking it, I went out and bought all of the David Goodis books I could get my hands on. "Dark Passage" is the second of his books I've read and after the intensity and surrealness of "The Burglar" I have to say that I found "Dark Passage" a little disappointing.Still a good read but somewhat frustrating in its pacing. Goodis is one of the greats of noir and anything by him is worth reading ....I'd just start with a different one than "Dark Passage" and work my way back to it.

It's great to see how the author wrote the original book, compared to the movie which I have seen many times. Many of the descriptions really bring it alive.

I'm a Bogie and Bacall fan and always will be! This is one of the best movies they made together and one you won't want to miss!

David Goodis was a master at building suspense and making you feel the terrifying claustrophobia and fear of his characters. He specialised in people who were down and out, had lost all hope and were at the end of their tethers, yet he managed to make things worse for them.

In this book, we get to meet Parry, a man who says he is innocent of the murder of his wife yet he is languishing in a San Quentin prison. Parry manages to escape and in the process meets two people (Studebaker and Irene) who will have an impact on his immediate future.

Without going into too much detail, the story is at times too convenient and unrealistic but that is Goodis as a writer, his strength was not believable plotting, it was the underlying terrible fear and the darkness of his work.

I found the novel to be entertaining enough to be a recommended read to anyone wanting to explore crime noir.
