And I don't want to leave the impression I didn't like THE CHILL, though I seem recall reading it under bad circumstances, while THE BLUE HAMMER, a controversial choice here I think, was the first Archer I read not in an anthology, and I thoroughly enjoyed it...enough years ago that I remember no incidents from it, though a sense of world-weariness has stuck with me.

I suggest reading The Chill. If you don't like that one, you probably won't like *any* of Macdonald's late-period novels. I think it's his best book.

I am also very fond of The Zebra-Striped Hearse, an earlier work with very good insight into young people.
