RARA-AVIS: Bill James

From: Mario Taboada ( matrxtech@yahoo.com)

I just finished _Gospel_, an outstanding hardboiled police procedural by Bill James. This book is unlike any other procedural I've read. It seems that James has invented something new. It's an unlikely cross between the toughness of George Higgins and the traditional English procedural with inspectors, but even that doesn't describe the product.

If this book is typical of his work, James deserves urgent attention.

Best regards,
