RARA-AVIS: Re: Mason and Gorman

I take it that's in the same series as WAKE UP LITTLE SUSIE, which I didn't finish. The protag didn't seem young, and the setting didn't seem anything like small town 1950s America, at least not mine (which was once profiled as the epitome of real America by the Saturday Evening Post). Had I detected anything left-sympathetic I might have kept reading.
    However, everyone else I know of who read the book praised it, and I generally don't like historical crime fiction because I pick at insignificant details.
    I've just finished Gar Anthony Haywood's WHEN LAST SEEN ALIVE, which is hard-boiled with an interesting assortment of ominous bad guys. I ordered two more in the series.
