But wasn't that exactly what some said about Caught Stealing, especially in reference to the cat torture scene?

I think the second was as good as the first. Somehow the aburdist take worked a bit better for me, seemed a bit more consistent. I was a bit disappointed by the third, but needed to see how it played out.

I also liked his two Vampyre novels, which are essentially hardboiled PI books.

Is Huston still writing Moon Knight? Is a second anthology scheduled?
