I confess I haven't read any of the Cool and Lam books. But the Norbert Davis comparison pushes the handful I own closer to the top of my to-be-read stack. Thanks.

Aren't the Perry Masons in print? I would swear I've seen them in
bookstores recently. One Gardner that should stay in print forever is
the collection of Ed Jenkins pulp stories. It's great fun. And the
Cool and Lam novels are good, too. Kudos to Hardcase Crime for
reprinting one of the best ones. Over the years I have collected maybe
two thirds of Cool & Lam. There's something very attractive about this
duo, something very Norbert Davis.
