I'm still relatively new to this group in particular and HB in general. I'm interested in reading other HB writers who have strong regional flavor in their stories -- especially writers whose stories are based in the here and now (not SF of the 30s and 40s or Ellroy's LA of the 50s.) Who else besides Pelecanos identifies closely with a city or a region?
