Jack Dwyer is Mr Gorman’s first private eye. The series ran five novels and THE AUTUMN DEAD is the best of the group. It is also one of Ed’s best novels. It is a thoughtful, melancholy journey that is heavy on working class angst, and also a terrific mystery that is both surprising and entertaining.
THE NIGHT REMEMBERS is a standalone. It features time weary and nostalgic retired police Sheriff's deputy Jack Walsh. A man who has problems younger than his age—a young son with a woman nearly half his age—and a character I wish had seen one more case. Its setting is perfectly described, and Walsh is something of a throw back.
This is a high quality trade paperback with two wonderful private eye novels, and a purchase you will not regret.
