RE : Re: RARA-AVIS: Quick Ken Bruen Questions

I'm a little bit late with my comments.
  The R&B series has to be read in order, I agree. The first one is the best, the rest is still funny but maybe is the result of quick writing...
  Bruen's Jack Taylor series, is IMHO of a better sort.
  Read the first one first (The Guards), and after this the order is of secondary importance. "The Guards" is a real gripping novel, noir, tough and full of ambiguity: an excellent read. Not as atypical as R&B, but reaching deeper layers; humor is also of another kind here: noir irony and cynicism, not caricatures and pure black humor as in the White Trilogy.
