RARA-AVIS: Somewhere a Roscoe

From: abc@wt.net
Date: 08 May 2000

Bob Randisi asked who'd read Mike Roscoe and John B. West. I think I've read most of the Mike Roscoe books and enjoyed them. Roscoe, as I recall, was actually two guys, and they were real private-eyes. I've also read most of John B. West's books. I always thought of his hero (could he really have been named "Rocky Steele"?) as sort of a cruder version of Mike Hammer.
 (I know some of you are wondering how that could be possible.) West was, I think, a physician. And I seem to remember that he was black and that he lived in South Africa at the time the books were written. But, my memory being what it is, I could be completely wrong about that.
