Do you really think Lehane keeps his heroes above the mud? Patrick and Angie are doing (and for the most part getting away with) things from the first book that I would have expected to *maybe* happen far into a long series when the heroes were scraping rock bottom. I suppose you could argue that P&A look good relative to Bubba, but that's not a very high standard. Me, I love 'em all, corrupt and nasty as they can get. I mean, really, it's fantasy.

As for Coben, Myron is just a wuss and Win is repulsive, but that's just one girl's opinion :).
