    The Ax by Donald Westlake

    It's every bit as great as Mario and others have been saying. What I liked most about the book, other than the simple but still smooth as silk style is the intelligence and thoughtfulness of it. I'm sure Westlake never worked for the paper industry or dealt with the pressures of todays' working middle-class, but it sure seemed like it from the book.

    I've read maybe 30 or so Westlake/Starks (still need to read Tucker Coe), and this is by far my favorite--maybe one of the best contemporary crime novels I've read.
