Ross Thomas is my favorite mystery writer. He is the ultimate "writer's writer." The Fourth Durango zings with his wit and sly humor. Love his characters. The plot is convoluted but fun to follow.
Victoria Houston added a status update: Hi everyone and sorry I don't post more often but when writing a book (which I am) that's all the writing I can do.

However, right now I've been rereading my favorite mystery writers -- Sjowall & Wahloo. First COP KILLER and I am currently in the middle of THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN. I love these books. Martin Beck et al are so human and funny.

more soon, V.

Of all his books, this is the most enjoyable for me. A clear narrative, well-written and none of the fancy footwork that infects his later books. I liked it very much.
