Ed McBain has written under many names, but Jeff Abbott isn't one of them.
 Jeff's a good writer and a fellow Texan, but hardboiled, he ain't. The two Gold Medal Books by Curt Cannon are about a private-eye named Curt Cannon. The Richard Marsten books aren't all of one type. One that I liked was EVEN THE WICKED, a title that Lawrence Block must have admired since he used it himself many years after the Marsten book was published.
