Can't speak for Dave, but I thought THE DISASSEMBLED MAN was the closest
thing to a Jim Thompson novel I've read that wasn't actually written by
Thompson. I posted an extract of the book on my website long before the book
was scheduled to be published. It was a blind submission. I'd never had any
contact with the author before. I posted the extract because I liked it. A
lot. And when I read the book, I gave a heads up on it to quite a few people
I thought would also enjoy it. In general, they did. It's not for everyone,
any more than Jim Thompson is. Taste is a peculiar thing.
