I've mentioned Disher a couple of times. Wyatt is almost Parker in Australia. Except for the locale I think the major difference is Wyatt does not have Parker's confidence. I like the The fourth book, Crosskill, best. Like Parker Wyatt manages to convince the 'outfit' (Yes, Disher uses the same term.) that it it is in their best interests to leave him alone.. . Mark
