I tried, but I couldn't get a pulse on it. This has happened to me with other Amis books, so I conclude that he is not for me. On Julian Barnes's mysteries, I found them interesting, quirky, well written, good books, though not nearly as good as his _History..._. In any case, it looks like his contributions to hardboiled ended a long time ago so yes, let's stay on topic.
