Just finished this novel by Joe Gores. What a great book! Loved it. I started this immediately after finishing Willeford's Shark-Infested Custard, and it didn't take ten pages into Dead Man to sense the difference in style. Gores's prose is alive and dynamic. The characters are vivid and interesting, and Gores interweaves subtle nuances throughout the book.

I've read a few others by him, Interface, Come Morning, and Cases. I think that Interface has been mentioned here as perhaps the greatest detective story ever written. Cases, although it is obviously a collection of short stories roughly patched together into a novel, is still a great book. Come Morning was OK. I think I've exhausted all my unread Gores novels. Time to stock up.
