RARA-AVIS: Weeding

Mark: I remember reading and quite enjoying those Pete Hamill books. THE GLORY HOLE MURDERS isn't very noir. It's pretty funny, though, and has some wild moments. But here's a warning: it's amateur sleuthing time. J.W. Ryder is a pen name for the guy who wrote BY REASON OF INSANITY. I think, but that's pretty suspect since I can't even recall the name. McShane? Oh, well. Hal Masur is pretty good. The Douglas Heyes is a definite keeper. TIGHTROPE is a keeper for sure. So is THE ALVAREZ JOURNAL. I've also enjoyed books by Chris Wiltz, Roger Simon, and Bill DeAndrea. I also liked MAKE MY BED SOON by Jack Webb and the Sam Space books.
