Sat, 8 May 1999 20:47:06 -0500 As William Campbell Gault was mentioned favorably on this list, I picked up
his Come Die With Me and am reading it. One paragraph stuck out:

"...Without official status, with no big stick to wave, the private
operative can work only on the the reaction of the people he investigates.
Only in their reaction can he hope to find revelation."

How true was this in the pre 1960 writing of P.Is, and has the genre changed
