RARA-AVIS: Ross Thomas (WAS: library sale)

From: Ed Lynskey ( e_lynskey@yahoo.com)
Date: 05 Jul 2002

Stayed up with Ross Thomas' Briarpatch, and enjoyed it. Elements of humor, violence, romance are understated and fast-paced. The protag, Ben Dill, plays out his cards with plot twists I didn't anticipatate. I'll add his other titles to my TBR stack.
