<I'm about half through the first Stoner novel, THE LIME PIT, and so
far, so good. Valin, so far, has avoided most of the PI cliches (bumps
on the head, hands in the clients' pants--of course, the client is a 75
year old man, but still...--etc.). Any other opinions of Valin?>>

Valin is a very solid writer; he has a mature voice not unlike that of
Stephen Greenleaf, another fine writer of P.I. novels who hasn't gotten
the attention that he deserves.
