American Bond authority Raymond Benson has taken over for Gardner. I sampled two of the later Gardners, and IMO, Benson is closer to the Fleming feel. His books include ZERO MINUS TEN, THE FACTS OF DEATH, and HIGH TIME TO KILL.

Parker's PERCHANCE TO DREAM is subtitled "Robert B. Parker's Sequel to Raymond Chandler's THE BIG SLEEP." On POODLE SPRINGS, Chandler retained top billing.
