You might want to read Loren Estleman's THE SMILE ON THE FACE OF THE TIGER in which Amos Walker tries to hunt down Eugene Booth, author of PARADISE VALLEY and DEADTIME STORY, to find out Booth has sent back the check a reprint publisher sent him who wanted to re-release one of his titles. It is a recommended read.
