Re: RARA-AVIS: Bill's Definition, last of Helm, F Brown, Ellroy show

Sun, 28 Feb 1999 23:33:14 -0500 Just a correction: Lou is the lady and fleeting lover of Matt Helm in
_The Wrecking Crew_ (the book I was commenting on), not _Murderer's
Row_. I may just as well add that I got confused about the reading
assignment. All I remembered was that we were reading Helm #1, which I
still haven't found in my library. Meanwhile, _Murderer's Row_ was and
is sitting in the shelf...It's my fault for remembering these books as
numbers rather than the titles.

By the way, does anyone agree that Hamilton's titles are some of the
worst in hardboiled fiction?
