murders, so I guess it's OK to mention here.

********* I read his PERDIDO STREET STATION a few months back
and I thought he showed a lot of talent but didn't really
produce, a boxer pulling punches. I thought PERDIDO was
definitely hardboiled and noir. I've got KING RAT and am
looking forward to reading it.
