Re: RARA-AVIS: Best books since 2000?

The Guards is very good. Bruen's protagonist, Jack Taylor, reminds me a bit of Mathew Scudder during his drinking days, but what makes this book is the writing. Bruen's style seems so damn effortless - it borders on brilliant. In this one Taylor investigates the apparant suicide of a young girl, but this is mostly incidental. The actual story is more of a personal nature. Well-worth reading, and should get you hooked on Bruen.

Bill, thanks for the mention of FAST LANE.
