I love the DKA books. If that were all Gores wrote he might have made my list. I really liked Hammett, but have not been as fond as some of his others. Obviously, my making restrictions as I did, I I damaged the chances of very versatile authors like Lawrence Block or Donald Westlake to be named. I've read all of Block's series except the Scudders. I read one of that series and didn't like it enough to seek out more. I've considered Westlake my favorite mystery author, yet I read one of his humorous novels years ago and it left no me no impression. It was only when I read my first Stark that I started seeking out all his stuff. Mark
