    I enjoyed THE DROWNING POOL as much as its forerunner HARPER. Not a common assertion where sequels are concerned. As far as the books go, I'm a fan of them all. In additon to those already specifcally mentioned I would also recommend THE WAY SOME PEOPLE DIE and THE BARBAROUS COAST, as well as some of his stand alone work like TROUBLE FOLLOWS ME and BLUE CITY. I have to admit though his THE THREE ROADS was a bit overwrought at times.

    Happy reading!

    Re your message below:

    "It seems to me the producers intended to launch a series of Harper movies and if that's the case I don't know why this never happened."

    There may not have been a series, but there WAS one sequel. The 1975 release, THE DROWNING POOL, based on the second Archer novel, had Newman repeating his role.
