Despite my stated aversion to RM, I'm looking forward to reading him as part of a community of (ridiculously knowledgable and opinionated) readers. I vote for whatever y'all think is his best, though I've *read* THE CHILL and pray to god it's not *really* his best. Black Money sounds great. But I'd roll the dice on Zebra or Galton or Far Side or Ivory too. My personal top choice would be THE WAY SOME PEOPLE DIE, but only because my Pocket Books version has an incredibly hot cover that makes me want to know what's inside.

Nothing post 1970, please. I just have a bad feeling.
