jim blue says: Eddie Coyle never accepted the fact that he had betrayed others to save his own skin. Easy never got comfortable with using Mouse to strong-arm and kill

other people. Exley never got over his incestuous desires that drove his behavior. Ray Dolan never got over the fact that he took part in a murder and cover-up

to protect the woman he loved.
    And on, and on, and bloody on.

ahhhhh! those inner demons! eating away at our poor, beseiged protagonist, eroding his self-confidence and self- worth! you gotta love it.

i'll tell ya... after i read charles william's _river girl_, and then burke's _black cherry blues_, i was searching the bookshelves for a little lighter reading, something perhaps with "rebecca" and "sunnybrook" in the title. ;-)
