I liked BIG HEAT very much, though it was pitched at an operatic tone a lot of the time -- sometimes McGivern's characters seemed to be operating just on this side of hysteria. I agree with you on ROGUE COP, which I couldn't finish. The only other McGivern I've read is ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW, which is my favorite of his books.
