    Two of the Lange books have been reprinted by Hard Case and should be easy to find if you're really curious. I've read one, Grave Descend, and it wasn't great..It read like something written in the course of an afternoon. It was all from one third person limited point-of-view, with the exception of one chapter late in the book where it switches to another character. That annoyed the hell out of me.
