Holliday [BORDERLINE was originally published under the pseudonym Don Holliday] didn’t hold back. Even people who like their noir fiction raw might be challenged to handle some of the content in Borderline. When the narrator follows the thoughts and actions of Weaver, the remorseless serial killer who preys on women and prefers his victims to be young, even someone who enjoys the unbridled pages of an Orrie Hitt might find themselves feeling uncomfortable. But whether those parts work for you or make you flip ahead in the book, they let you know you’re reading the work a guy who knew his way around a savagely hardboiled novel. So, yeah, this Holliday guy could write.
