If you like Rex Stout, you'd probably like them. Somewhere
I've got 3 or 4 that were reprinted in, I'd guess, the 1970s.
At least I think I have them; I moved a couple of times in
the early 1990s and had to toss thousands. The protagonist
was in advertising, I think. I assume Vidal wrote them to
make ends meet before his higher-brow stuff caught on, but he
did a good job.
Rene, you must have a huge pile of books like I used to have. Are you on the McGuffin list?
Joy, who wants her next house to have a library, a big room
with built-in bookshelves on every wall. . . .
