Re: RARA-AVIS: Once more into the breech...

Hi Neil,
    It's great to have you back on the list, and you're right about Crais. He has finally become a writer worth reading. He has always been talented, but he chose to copy the worst aspects of a guy who had lost his way.
    Parker's commercial success (and that of Crais) demonstates that there is a market for tales of a self-absorbed, PC sensitive, sanctimonious detective, but the new Crais material (LA Req. & Angel) is the first stuff he's done that hits me as original and real.
