Re: RARA-AVIS: Get Carter / Jack Carter's series

Mark Sullivan (
Fri, 19 Mar 1999 00:39:21 -0500 (EST) The other two Carters, Jack Carter's Law (1974) and Jack Carter and the
Mafia Pigeon (1977), are clearly cash-in books after the movie made
good. They are still fun, just not nearly as good or as cold as Get
Carter (1970).

I've also read Billy Rags (1973) which is a pretty good prison
life/prison escape book, kind of like a British version of Eddie
Bunker's Animal Factory. Etienne and I have already heartily endorsed
GBH (1980).

I've also got copies of Plender (1971) and Boldt (1976), but haven't
read either. I've also seen Rabbit (?) is in print in the UK, but
haven't bought it yet. Which leaves only his debut, straight novel, All
the Way Home And All the Night Through (1965). It is his crime books
that live on.
