I can't attest to all the others, but I've read DARK RIDE, which was his initial foray into the noir genre that had a distinct James Cain vibe to it
(well, except for the S&M bent...), and it was a fantastic read, absolutely great. I'm about halfway through DIA DE LOS MUERTOS (another noir'ish title) and, like you, am enjoying that one a great deal as well. I have TATTOOED MUSE, his Hitchcockian thriller, somewhere in the mail to me. That leaves AMERICAN BOYS, his espionage novel, still on my to-get list. So while my exposure to him is still relatively recent and new, he certainly seems like the Real Deal to me. Good stuff.
