But, as with the others you cite, he unended it. Grimhaven, which certainly would have tainted the main character beyond repair, was written after Miami Blues, what became the first of the series. Three books followed. They incorporated some of the elements of Grimhaven, but not the ending. And the fourth book certainly does not seem like an ending, more like a new beginning, as Hoke comes out changed at the end
(along with some big changes in the lives of other series regulars). Unfortunately, Willeford died and we never got to see where he'd take the character. Or other characters in other books if it was intended as the end.
