You learn things as you go along - my first was certainly my weakest, too. I found The Tree of Death only so-so, but try one of the other earlyish ones, perhaps?

**************** Thanks to you and Ed and Todd for your comments and recommendations on Muller. I'll give her another go one of these days. Thanks to the people on rara-avis, I've got a bunch of good stuff to read sitting on the shelf. For quite a while now I've been trying to read authors new to me. I haven't been entirely faithful to that policy. I've come back to Hammett, Chandler, Charles Williams, and Willeford several times. My goal was to read a hundred new authors. Done passed that goal up a few novels ago. I thought I would have a pretty good foundation in the hardboiled and noir genre by then, but geez... I still haven't read Highsmith, Gil Brewer, Leigh Brackett, Jason Starr, and a bunch others. Time to start on another hundred.
 Life is rough.
