Doug--I agree on Destroyer. I'm somewhat embarassed that I like him so much, actually. You should try Warren Murphy's Trace series (four or five books, I think), and his Digger series (four books, I think). They're even funnier.

Isn't Don Pendleton a pseudonym for Donald Westlake? Or am I confused? Anyone know?
