There are very few crime novels I start that I can't finish, but there have been a few.

************* I give up on maybe 1 out of 20. Last one I couldn't finish was by Craig Rice. Yuk. And I feel your pain with THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE. It's an important milestone in the hardboiled genre, so I plowed my way through to the finish, but I found it drab and dull. I didn't give a rat's ass what happened to anybody in the book.
