Hard Feelings

B

Richie Segal is the classic Everyman: stuck in a ho-hum marriage, trying to drink a little less, flailing at his sales job, and generally muddling his way through middle-class life. A chance encounter with a childhood bully, though, turns Segal’s life around — and not for the better — in Starr’s workaday thriller, a throwback to the spare, snappy crime writing of Jim Thompson and James M. Cain. Starr is not at the level of his heroes, but Feelings is a noble effort to revive the hard-boiled theme of an ordinary life gone terribly wrong.
