Rabe is definitely the goods. Donald Westlake rightly sings his praises. Rabe's best books are as lean and mean as anything this side of Jim Thompson. Other Rabe titles worth hunting down include: The Box, Anatomy of a Killer
(probably Rabe's best novel; it was reprinted in its entierty in Ed Gorman's Dark Crimes, so it's fairly easy to find), Murder Me for Nickles (a comedy), and A House in Naples. But don't stop there. Just about everything he wrote is worth reading.
