Finishing HE DIED WITH HIS EYES OPEN, and it's simply a marvelous book. First in the Factory series of novels, the nameless Sergeant at the Department of Unexplained Deaths struggles to figure out who beat an old drunk to death. Really more of a bleak meditation on existential loneliness than anything else, it's exquisitely written, surprising in parts, and oddly rather beautiful in others. Highly recommended, if you can find it.

Are the other Factory novels this good?
