[spam score 6.00/10.0 -pobox] RARA-AVIS: Archer Starter kit: Lau

THE CHILL is not as bad a starter as THE UNDERGROUND MAN, but not the one I'd begin with. THE BLUE HAMMER and LEW ARCHER, INVESTIGATOR (iirc--the short story collection) have been my favorites of the ones I've read.

okay. while I've read almost all of the usual suspects bandied about on the

list, I'm embarrassed to say that I've never managed to pick the Ross MacD's

out of my TBR shelf. this discussion has rectified that.

I have THE CHILL and THE NAME IS ARCHER. which should I open first, and what one other work is essential? THE GALTON CASE perhaps? after reading these three, I'll decide whether or not to pursue him further.
