Great admirer and fan's advice: Start with his first, "A Firing Offense", and read them all in order.

More reasonable advice: If you can, start with "The Big Blowdown" and run through the rest of the D.C. Quartet after that--"King Suckerman", "The Sweet Forever," and January's forthcoming "Shame The Devil."

The One Book advice: "King Suckerman"
