I finished reading THE BRASS RAINBOW (1969), the second title in the PI Dan Fortune series, last night. I enjoyed it as much as if not more than a couple later Dan Fortune titles (CHASING EIGHTS from 1990) and (CASSANDRA IN RED from 1992). Dan Fortune in TBR (dedictated to Ken Millar, the author's early benefactor) is still set in NYC. A couple near explanations account for his one arm. Though DF runs up against the rich and corrupt here, the social "message" isn't laid on too thick. The narrative is well paced; the prose crisp and clean.

Recommendations for other entries in the Dan Fortune series?
