Thanks for this clarification, Mark. The edition I read of SUCH MEN ARE DANGEROUS didn't include this preface but just Block's byline. I finished Westlake's THE AXE, and both narrators use a quiet, insistent, and eerie tone. Of course, Burke Devore wants to work at his old profession while Paul Kavanagh just wants to drop out.
