Monkey's Raincoat came out in 1987 anf Devil in a Blue Dress in 1990.

I actually agree with you about Pike and was going to write that, but if you consider Hawk psycho, Pike is certainly is more so. 'Dress is the only Mosley book I've read so Mouse being an example didn't occur to me. As far as that goes, Coben's first, Deal Breaker, came out in '95 a year after Lehane's A Drink Before the War. so maybe I should have ended with Win insead. .

Kevin - any more? Mark
