Mark, I actually kept my Richard Starks so I could have looked up the titles, but I thought you would know. OK, I guess I'll have to supply the titles. The Parker-Grofield book is THE HANDLE in which Grofield is wounded. In THE DAMSEL Grofield is still recovering in Mexico from the wound at the beginning but obviously is well enough for the book's action.

BTW, Since you are so anal to only read a series in order, how could you have not read the Grofield books when they so interlock with the early Parker books? Mark
