RARA-AVIS: Re: The popularity of the Private Investigator

I was about to mention John Shannon's Jack Liffey books, which are still being written. I've read the first six, and number 9 (I think) is due out this year.
    "Ray Shannon's" FIRECRACKER features a PI, and I was hoping it's the beginning of a series, but I haven't seen any more yet, and it's been a couple of years. (And if whoever was looking for Las Vegas books still is, this book covers contemporary casinos and streets.) But I really miss the Gar Anthony Haywood PIs. I prefer broke to successful.
    The Thomas Lipinski books, set in Pittsburgh, seem to have stopped some years back. Joy
