Crumley introduced the dog in one of the great opening lines in
detective fiction: "When I finally caught up with Abraham Trahearne,
he was drinking beer with an alcoholic bulldog named Fireball Roberts
in a ramshackle joint just outside of Sonoma, California drinking the
heart right out of a fine spring afternoon."
speaking of great opening lines, this is from T. Jefferson Parker's
STORM RUNNERS, which I'm currently reading:
"Stromsoe was in high school when he met the boy who would someday
murder his wife and son."
