I've also had the pleasure of reading THE DEAD ROOM and it's something special. Really. Bruen gives good short. "Fade To Brooklyn" in BROOKLYN NOIR was unfairly ignored in the reviews I read. And as for the Taylor books, I'm personally not sure how far Taylor can go. But then, I thought that after THE McDEAD, and Bruen continues to surprise me.

By not being dead, mostly. Heh.
