Re: RARA-AVIS: Gold Medal: Matt Helm #8

Hamilton's concentration and pacing are remarkable, as is his objectivity in telling a story. I have _Murderers' Row_ lined up for reading. But first I have to finish Aarons's Assignment: Burma Girl. It's so good I don't want it to end. I see a Buchan-Ambler-Aarons line, faint but real.

My Gold Medal reading got interrupted by several manuscripts and, notably, by Dave Zeltserman's postnoir chiller _In His Shadow_ (review forthcoming), as different stylistically from Aarons & Hamilton as it's possible to be.

And after all the talk about Gil Brewer, I will have to pay my dues to this eccentric, uneven and often brilliant goldmedalist.
