RARA-AVIS: Russell James

I've been hearing about Russell James for a while now but his books are difficult to get in Australia. He is apparently dubbed 'the Godfather of British noir' so when I laid my hands on his latest "Pick Any Title," I assumed I was in for a dark treat. Not so at all. The book is a manic caper novel, very witty, very well done, but noir it is not. Are his other books more serious?
