    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.
