Re: RARA-AVIS: Bruen and the Tinkers

Date: 16 Mar 2005

Michael, I'm among those that read your very amusing denunciation of Bruen as a recommendation. I think both of his series, Jack Taylor and Brant, are great, but if you didn't like this one, you probably won't like any f those, since they all have a similar style (though one's in first person, one in third) and are equally casual in how crimes are, or are not, solved.

However, if you do want to give Bruen another chance, you might want to check out his earlier standalones which are far more traditional. They are what earned him comparison to Thompson and Goodis. And on my last trip to Borders I noticed that Serpent's Tail has just reprinted two of those, Rilke on Black and Her Last Call to Louis MacNamee.
