R/G's "In the Labyrinth" is also fantastic. As to unreliable narrators--not mentioning the entire realm of "confessional" narratives (except to not mention it), the narrators of Thompson's "Hell of a Woman,"
"Killer Inside Me," "Savage Night," "Pop. 1280," and
"After Dark My Sweet" are some of THE most unreliable in the business. Their initial tales of murder/etc. always evolve/devolve into tales of novel-writing and ambiguity. Rob
