    No. It's on my shelf, but I guess I haven't been eager to get to it. I've read all of his except the two new ones, and I don't see any real differences in the quality of female character development or of consistent, reasonable, character motivation in any of them. Also, the cloying, sanctimonius, smart ass, "I am Peter Pan and I'll never grow up" hero and his lovable psycopath sidekick send me running for someone like Walter Mosely, or Pelecanos, or Jackson. or Goodis.
