RARA-AVIS: Steven Hunter ? was Dirty White Boys (was Hard Boiled Pulitzer)

What happened to that guy with HOT SPRINGS?

Up to that point I'd read everything he'd ever written, but with HOT SPRINGS I stopped about halfway.
 All I remember was really, really atrocious dialogue and the grotesque overuse of a certain racial slur. Was there any sort of a plot? Did his subsequent books get better?

I loved all the early "Bob the Nailer" stuff though.
