    Hi, Chris. My suggestion about Parker is.... read everything! ONe of my favorite writers, very strong in characterization (as has been pointed out) but also in plot and a sense of place. This is one writer that I have been reading with pleasure since his first book appeared
    (Laguna Heat), already a long time ago. He shares with Thomas Cook the ability to really involve the reader in what's happening, you can't be indifferent.
