Read from November 15 to 21, 2010

This guy was an amazing writers, both of these books are among the best written 1960s paperback originals I've read. He's up there with Willeford and Charles Williams. And if you're skittish due to an overdose of Jim Thompson, a lot of this is dark but it's not all gargling with drano, i.e. there's even a little happiness in both books.

I'm really looking forward to On the Yard and his prison memoir. Too bad he died young but it's nice that he got 15 years of freedom at the end.
