    And they hold up marvelously well three decades later... Let me add my favorite, Freaky Deaky, to the pile. I have to say that, while some Leonards are better than other Leonards, I have yet to be bored by any of his books. That is something valuable, I think.

    In the past several months I used a weird method of picking reads, and ended up alternating between Leonard, Donald Hamilton and miscellaneous Westlakes... I wasn't bored for a second.
