And, like Bill, I also laughed when reading Jason's TWISTED CITY, and most of his other books (admittedly, it was nervous laughter, and it probably makes me really warped :o))....

************ All of your post was great, Donna. You have definitely cranked through a lot of great noir/hardboiled authors. I snipped down to your comment on Jason because I remember a humorous moment that I really enjoyed in TOUGH LUCK. Mickey Prada's father has been an asshole to everybody all his life, especially to Mickey. When the old man dies, the boy goes to the race track to spread his ashes. The wind whips up and blows the ashes in Mickey's face. Haha! Even death doesn't prevent the old man from being a pain in the ass.

Mario mentioned the author winking at the reader. I'll second that.
