Thing about Scott is each book has been better than the last. In other words, good as it is, I think Ice Harvest is his weakest book. Each new one promises a treat.

I'm wondering whether Dominic Stansberry feels anything similar about his work. Not which book is best, but whether he feels he's explored in fiction, with The Confession, all the points he wanted to make in his Noir Manifesto, or whether there are more advances to come in the same vein. What direction, in other words?

I've only read The Confession, though others are on order, but I get the feeling from others on the list that The Confession is a peak, so far.

I dunno. Maybe the question's unfair.
