    Folks have recommended all of Winslow's books of the last ten years
    and I agree thoroughly, every one of them is terrific , but nobody has yet mentioned his earlier series of five books starring Neal Carey. Carey's not exactly a P.I., more a kind of corporate
    "fixer", and the books aren't as great as THE POWER OF THE DOG, CALIFORNIA FIRE AND LIFE, etc., but they're very much worth reading. The first is called A COOL BREEZE ON THE UNDERGROUND funny, tough, sad, full of good stuff.

    You can't go wrong with Don Winslow. (Unless you accidentally pick up one of the pornos by a *different* Don Winslow, like SLAVE GIRLS OF ROME. Not to be confused.)
