Crumley's other detective, Milo Milodragovitch, appears in the pre-Last Good Kiss book The Wrong Case (very Ross Macdonald, down to attributing the epigraph to Macdonald instead of Nelson Algren, the "wise man from Chicago," Macdonald attributes it to in one of his Archer novels) and the post-Kiss Dancing Bear (just misses tying Kiss as Crumley's best). C.W Sughrue returns in Mexican Tree Duck (with unidentified appearances by Milo behind the bar) and, as Mario has noted, the two are together in Bordersnakes.

At least Wrong Case, Kiss and Dancing Bear (along with the non-mystery One to Count Cadence) were reprinted by Vintage Contemporaries, so they shouldn't be too hard to find used.
