Richard, for God's sake, please stop reading living authors before another one dies!

As synchronicity would have it, I am halfway through a Huggins book myself, 77 Sunset Strip. It is cobbled together from three stories, the first of which was Death and the Skylark, the story Richard mentioned. I read Double Take about a year ago. Huggins really does a nice Chandleresque turn. Stuart Bailey is similar too, and almost as good as Huggins' buddy Howard Browne's Paul Pine.
