I just read Crumley's ONE LAST GOOD KISS.
In it, the character says something like
he'd traveled 4000 miles on the case.
That got me thinking -- are there any
PI novels with very limited range of
motion, such as a PI is solving a crime
that takes place in a prison?
Since I think the PI owes something to
the western (again with a wide range of
possible motion), which owes something
to crusading knights (motion - check),
I wondered how that concept has been
turned inside out over the years.
