RARA-AVIS: A couple of Crumley questions

From: Douglas Hoffman ( azureus@harborside.com)

In the last few weeks, I've read Bordersnakes and The Mexican Tree Duck, in that order (backwards, but I have a bad habit of that sort of thing). I always end up not understanding key elements of mysteries -- not just with Crumley's novels, but in general. Guess I'm not good at paying attention.

Anyway, if anyone remembers these books well enough to answer my questions, could you either answer here, or email me
( azureus@harborside.com)? I'd appreciate it.

These questions might be spoilers for folks who haven't read the books. You've been warned!


1. I know Milo's mystery and Sughrue's mystery are supposed to be connected, but I didn't get the connection. 2. The guys who shoot Sughrue in the gut: who hired them to try to kill Sughrue? 3. In The Mexican Tree Duck, I take it Solly wanted Sughrue to find Sarita, but why? Since the DEA controls Solly, do they want Sarita for some reason?
