RARA-AVIS: Teddy Hayes/Devil Barnett

Today, I ran across a book called Dead By Popular Demand: A Harlem Noir by Teddy Hayes. It's the second book to feature the character Devil Barnett, a retired CIA op who now owns a jazz club in Harlem. Apparently, he finds himself in situations where he must use his CIA skills.

It seems the books were originally published by X Press in the UK. I wasn't impressed by the one X Press book I read years ago. I think it may have been called The Driver and it was a blatant rip-off of Taxi Driver, but with a black gypsy cab driver in the lead role. Hope these books are better.

Anyway, the Devil Barnett books sound kind of cheesy, but I was wondering if they were good cheesy or bad cheesy. Anyone read any of them?
