Macdonald's writing was always excellent, so you lose nothing
by taking up _The Goodbye Look_. I have special affection for
_The Zebra-Striped Hearse_, _The Far Side of the Dollar_ and
an early one, _The Ivory Grin_. My advice is to go to a used
bookstore and grab a handful, then sit down and enjoy the
ride. Jerry lives.
Lawrence Block once wrote that, as soon as he finishes a
Macdonald book, he forgets everything about it. I've had
exactly the same experience. That's an added benefit of your
investment in the handful of yellowed, dog-eared paperbacks.
