I loved _Tropic of Night_, though it's not the sort of book we'd usually discuss on a list like this. It had a real, palpable sense of dread and foreboding to it, almost more like a horror novel, though ultimately it turned into a police procedural. I've got Gruber's second, _Valley of Bones_ in my immediate TBR pile
(just as soon as I finish Adrian McKinty's second, the so far wonderful _Hidden River_).

*************** Thanks for the feedback, Craig. Sounds like you liked him. horror novel turned police procedural sounds pretty much on-topic to me, and not that uncommon anymore, either, probably courtesy of Thomas Harris's Hannibal series. I think I've got a McKinty novel on the bookshelf waiting on me. Maybe DEAD I MAY WELL BE?

I'm cranking through my first Robert Crais novel now, L.A. REQUIEM. Just about finished. Really good. Lotta Chandler's influence in it.
