I don't expect everybody to like the books I like. I just give my reactions and recommendations for the heck of it. With that in mind, I can't resist urging you to read this Stark House Double. Peter Rabe was one of my great Gold Medal discoveries back in the long ago, when I was starting out with writers like Charles Williams, Harry Whittington, John D. MacDonald, and others. A Shroud for Jesso has gangsters and spies. Fine stuff. Anatomy of a Killer is (I think) Rabe's only hardcover and very difficult to find. Check 'em out.
