As to Brown's Requiem, it did not make me retch. In fact, I enjoyed it. It has a pulp feel to it, a brazenness that I found appealing. I haven't reread it, though. Maybe today I would find fault with it. Oh, and I also liked Suicide Hill, which has good characterization.

************ I remember you chewing his ass for The Cold Six Thousand, though, Mario. Something to the effect of suggesting he do some writing after all the brainstorming.

The second time I read a book is a real acid test. The Black Dahlia came through solid. A beautiful piece of noir. It had it all, murder, obsession, corruption, betrayal, action, and love. All of that in stunning technicolor black and white.
