RARA-AVIS: RE: Prather's successor

 It's good to see attention paid to Richard S. Prather. The Shell Scott books are in a league all their own - great dialogue, hilarious situations and well-constructed mysteries that a few of today's "hardboiled" writers ought to study. There is one writer who I think comes close to matching Prather's humor-detection mix - Warren Murphy. Has there been any discussion of his "Digger" and "Trace" books on this list? And if not, why not?
