    Damn. When I fell in love with the P.I. genre in the early '80s, Bill Pronzini and Robert B. Parker were my heroes among contemporary writers. Although I dropped Parker after _A Catskills Eagle_, I still have a soft spot for the early Spenser novels.

    Personal favorites are _Looking for Rachel Wallace_, _Early Autumn_,
    _Ceremony_. Hell, I could probably list the first eleven novels. I'll be interested in seeing which more recent novels come up in this discussion.
