Thanks for these suggestions! I remember the Mahannah novel fondly, though I don't remember it very well. ANATOMY OF A KILLER somehow never appealed to me as much as I know it does to some other readers
(over dinner earlier tonight, Al Guthrie was telling me how much he likes it). I look forward to hunting down copies of the rest over the coming months...

Best, Charles
