Re your comment below:

"I see that *Red Harvest* again mentioned. I know it's supposed to be seven novellas strung together, but it never did anything for me."

Actually, it's four novellas, "The Cleansing of Poisnville," "Crime Wanted - Male or Female,"
"Dynamite," and "The 19th Murder," all published in BLACK MASK between 11/27 and 2/28. All three of the Op novels, as well as THE GLASS KEY, were contstructed in this manner. I think the seams are rather well-concealed in RED HARVEST, though. Certainly better than they are in BLOOD MONEY or THE DAIN CURSE.
 Perhaps not as well-concealed as in THE GLASS KEY, though.

"To me it was just non-stop action and mayhem leading to not much of anything."

You say that like it's a bad thing.
