Maybe now, but I first read Chinaman's Chance before Leonard had his breakthrough, so the comparison wouldn't have sold many copies. As a matter of fact, I always thought of Leonard's post-paperback-original books, particularly his Miami books, when he started using multiple plotlines, in terms of Thomas. I also thought of Thomas Perry's Metzger's Dog as an homage to Thomas.
