    I think Williams is a better writer than John D MacDonald (so did he), Gil Brewer, Jim Thompson or Charles Willeford.

I liked it a lot, so I'm not sure why I've never gotten around to reading any of the others of his I've picked up over the years: The Hot Spot (really liked the movie), Wrong Venus, All the Way and Big Bite. I really should get on that.
