RARA-AVIS: Re: Charles Knief

    I agree with Tim's take on Knief's John Caine to some degree. Caine is the closest I've seen to McGee, but Knief *does not* intend him to be Trav reincarnated. The books are a good mix of lone heroics, sleuthing, and hardcore action. Caine's pain threshold seems superhuman at times, but he *is* a SEAL. Incidentally, Knief's life has been almost as adventurous as Caine's. He's writing what he knows.
