Does anyone think Carroll John Daly,was a good writer?

************* I liked The Snarl of the Beast, but I wouldn't call Daly a good writer. I wouldn't call Harriett Beecher Stowe a good writer either, and yet she wrote a book that rocked the English-speaking world and is still today considered a literary classic. Of course, all Daly did was invent the hardboiled genre, but it's still a distinction. Of sorts.
