What So Funny? is his most recent Dortmunder novel, I enjoyed it. I checked it out of the library, the rest I own.

Killy is both very tough and psychological, definitely hard boiled. The main character becomes an intern for Walter Killy at a union, they go to a town to recruit the shoe factory's workers into their union. I bought it used from/via Amazon.
