> Anyone else picked up anything good lately?

Last week I picked up THE ENEMIES WITHIN by Michael Lewin, someone that I haven't seen mentioned here yet. I have no idea if this actually *is* any good, but there are kind things on the Thrilling Detective web site about his Albert Samson series. Any opinions on Lewin?

The cover blurb (Swedish hardback from 1974) is pretty fascinating, btw. Lewin is here described as one of those promising young writers who might pick up the mantle from Raymond Chandler and Ross MacDonald (other contenders mentioned are such young hopefuls as Robert B. Parker and Arthur Lyons). Well, obviously it didn't turn out
*quite* like that...
