Thanks, Norman. I recently read the first Challis/Destry novel, Dragon Man, and enjoyed it very much. So much so that I've bought the second, Kittyhawk Down. I think it will take me a while to get up to Chain of Evidence, though, as I think there are 5 or 6 in the series. Wyatt does not appeal to me as it is nth in another series and also I don;t like books that glamourise or romanticise crime and/or tell the story from the criminal's perspective. As you say in your review of Chain of Evidence, I'm more of a Harry Bosch-style reader.

Yes! Totally agree on this. I don't like books told from the murderer/psychopath's point of view or that goes into their thinking.

I'd rather read about a decent protagonist who's unraveling the crime, characters I can like.

I am reading one of Disher's other Challis/Destroy books which is enjoyable.
