Terry, if you feel so inclined, I'd like to hear a bit more on the differences you found. Bruen alone has stylistic differences in his own catalog, the Brant books, for instance, read very different from his early standalones. I haven't read much McCarthy, but liked his voice in The Road, but just could not get into Blood Meridian (yeah, I know, it's great and I should try again; someday I may).
