<<i don't exactly know how to say this... let me try. gores generates the excitement and fear and danger of violence thru a quick and clean description, instead of pumping the narrative up with a bunch of emotionally charged adjectives and sentences. the contast between his unflinching description of the action and the actual action itself serves to accentuate it.>>

Very well put. He's the contemporary Hammett. The same detached and nonchalant tone, a similar sense of humor, the same skill in condensing the action. His characters are more fleshed-out than Hammett's, in keeping with the style of modern crime fiction.

I am glad you enjoyed this book.
