Yeah, I knew he wasn't in all of the novels - just couldn't remember which ones he <was> in.
... and, I'd just finished re-reading "The Long Goodbye".

I vaguely remember him in "The Pencil" - but I'd entirely forgotten about
"Finger Man".

I'll have to add that to the re-read pile.

Pretty sure he wasn't in any of the cannibalised stories - having read those recently.

Thanks again - Rob
