Thanks for the information about Adams. William Rye's method of dealing with a blackmailer early in "Dig Me a Grave" was a bit brutal: he meets the blackmailer at the man's apartment, beats him up and kicks him while he is on the floor, then sets fire to the apartment in order to burn up all of the blackmailer's materials. Rye acts like this is nothing unusual, and shows no emotion. Adams must have been a fan of Race Williams.
