I'm not sure who's the best. Two years ago, I enjoyed reading Stephen Greenleaf's PI Marshall Tanner series. IMO, it's worth re-reading. Michael Collins' PI Dan Fortune has some good titles. My current read, MEMORIAL DAY by Harry Shannon featuring Mick Callahan, has been fun. The Nevada desert setting is great.
