"But Gores has never been serving up the PI fantasy. He's been applying the police procedural's technical verity to stories about private detectives rather than police detectives. Indeed, Gores himself refers to the DKA series as "procedurals" rather than as "private eye novels."

I read a very positive review of his latest DKA book yesterday. It even brings back some of the gypsies from 32 Caddilacs. I don't know how Gores does it, but even at their most absurd, his books still seem completely within the real world.
