John Reese had his good days and his bad days, but he definitely wasn't a hack. He had a good sense of humor, always a plus. Probably his best work is his westerns, especially JESUS ON HORSEBACK, about a gunslinger who finds God, and a PBO comic caper novel called TRIXIE, FATS AND OMAR is also worth reading.
