I know what you mean. I used to love the Lew Archer books because of the byzantine plotting and imagery, but the prose can be a bit thick. And after a while he began to repeat himself. It's been awhile since I read them, but I remember reading two or three that had essentially the same core plot gimmick. Talk about deja vu. C.J.
