RARA-AVIS: Re: One Ross Macdonald book

Hi Bill, I started off with THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF PRIVATE EYE STORIES to get a feel for the genre. Since then I've read FREAK and MINNESOTA STRIP by Michael Collins, EIGHT MILLION WAYS TO DIE and A TICKET TO THE BONE YARD by Robert Block, RED HARVEST by Hammett, LITTLE SISTER by Chandler, THE MONKEY'S RAINCOAT and STALKING THE ANGEL by Robert Crais, EVERYBODY HAD A GUN and HAVE GAT WILL TRAVEL by Richard Prather, and ONE LONELY NIGHT by Mickey Spillane. I really like Robert Block and Michael Collins. Right now I'm in the middle of THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF PULP FICTION. I have a lot of others in my 'to read' pile, and I'll need something for a long road trip. I'm thinking either BLACK ECHO by Michael Connelly or FAREWELL MY LOVELY by Chandler. Any thoughts?
