    So, David. Start with Factory 1 or what. Never heard of Mr. Raymond. Seems worthy of a read, at least til your latest gets here.

      one of my favorite writers within the crime genre. There are certain
      themes that are present in the books I've read so far--physical
      decline, the inevitability of death, cruelty and compassion, and his
      writing has a poetry and verve that's unique, as well as an
      audaciousness that at times leaves me laughing out loud. This is
      really great stuff, and people here who haven't read him, I can't
      recommend him highly enough.
