Rabe's "Kill the Boss Goodbye" is an odd portrait of a gangster who refuses
to face reality during his efforts to climb back on top of his gangland
fiefdom. Shorter but more psychologically involved than many contemporary
crime novels I've seen lately. It was a weird feeling to find myself
rooting for one of the bad guys during the course of the novel.

Black Lizard reprinted this. I think it's out of print now.

Other Rabe recommendations? -- Duane
