Mark, I haven't read enough of the other series, but I certainly agree with you about Travis McGee. Maybe you can evaluate a series by examining the number of pages of a book as time passes. If Robert Parker could write a very good book in under 200 pages in his early books why does he need over 300 in his later ones? Don't answer. We all know the reason..

And we all know what happened when Doyle tried to kill off Sherlock. Maybe it's impossible. If the series is popular enough eventually someone will extend it. Mark
