     Two new ones you might like are Boyos by Richard Marinick or Nobody Runs Forever by Richard Stark. Both are really good books. Marinick is a fist time novelist.

     A couple of others that you might like are The Narrowback or Bad Connection by Michael S. Ledwidge, I've never been disappointed by Ledwidge.

Hope this helps,
