As far as I know, Watts has two books Cons and the Money
Lovers, and I was absolutely blow away by each. Think of
James M. Cain with James Ellroy's imagery (but without his
sometimes plodding and convuluted plots). Evil woman,
semi-tough guy saps, dumb scheming husbands...I'm really
surprised that he hasn't done more and that he hasn't been
recognized (at least, no where that I've found). His books
are published by Soho (which by the way, has the nicest
looking collection of crime books in the business, IMHO). I
just can't rave enough about Watts.
