RARA-AVIS: Books I couldn't finish

There are very few crime novels I start that I can't finish, but there have been a few. I wonder if anyone else on this list has had similar experiences. The number, percentage-wise is low, maybe one in a hundred. The ones that come to mind are The Friends of Eddie Coyle, Flinch (the most recent) and Anatomy of a Murder (3 times I started it).

My rule is I give everything at least 80 pages.

There have been some, mostly Jason's, that creeped me out so much I almost didn't finish them, e.g., Hard Feelings, Cold Caller, but I persevered and now am a fan.
