You've intrigued me with this JD MacDonald title. Are the
"people who're nver seen" you refer to never introduced beforehand in the plot by name or are they not viewed by McGee and Meyers?

P.S. I finished Ross Macdonald's THE IVORY GRIN which was commented on the rara-avis archives. The rich lady client makes her obligatory appearance but the plot doesn't really involve her that much. Archer is out smashing mouths and blasting his piece. Also, there's an interesting (at least to me)twist at the ending.

Currently reading Craig Holden's THE RIVER SORROW with dj blurbs from Mr. Crumley and Mr. Ellroy.
