Jim, you're right. Archer and Fortune have similar temperaments. They are both sharp observers, and they are both compassionate.There is also a similarity in that the cases end not solved but finished (with a lot of characters finished, too...). The narrative styles are somewhat similar, though Lynds lets Fortune digress more than Macdonald lets Archer. They are both first-class writers.

Best regards,
