I asked the question only because I've read one novel by him and he's a relatively new writer compared to others on the list. Having said that, I really enjoyed The Follower. As I said before, he reminds me of Jim Thompson. Funny that you mention Nothing Personal. I just found a copy of it yesterday in a discount rack and bought it. I should start reading it soon.
