--Oh please do read DURANGO -- it's one of my favorites of his. Thomas always had a knack for portraying corrupt small towns and this is certainly no different, but even more delicious. Just the idea that a town could make money by harboring white collar criminals is great, but of course, Thomas adds all sorts of twists and it's all the more enjoyable for them.
