Whisper (old Prizzi's voice): Some day you may need a favor...

As others have said, The Taste of Ashes is a great novel, a glorious swan song to the Chandler-style PI era. Another remarkable swan song, written much later, is Crumley's The Last Good Kiss. But I'm saying nothing new: everybody loves this novel.

I would like to propose Moral Ambiguity as a monthly topic.
