AH, TREACHERY - Ross Thomas
I have managed to find as many re-published Ross Thomas's as are available and have made a pig of myself with them.
I have read them all previously,owned them and sold them which is a bugger because they are virtually impossible to get now.
Up until his death there was an annual Ross Thomas and it was eagerly awaited. I have never understood why he was not a super star, James Crumley is the same - great,great writing and loyal followers but not a household name.
This story is very political, concerning machinations amongst the Washington power brokers and missing "hush" money.
All the usual humour and cynicisim we expect.
This was his last book prior to his death and there ain't no more sadly.
