    Bradbury's _Death is a lonely business_ (1985) is an unforgettable noir novel of Los Angeles. Bradbury also contributed stories to the mystery pulps. He moved with ease between genres. Now that the name has been brought up, I think it's possible that Crumley was influenced by Bradbury. Both exhibit the volcano gene. When Bradbury gets going, the intensity can become almost unbearable, and the same is true of Crumley.
