The Way Some People Die, by Ross MacDonald

This book is an example of why I started this blog.  I've probably read this book twice before and I'd really like to know if I've already picked up a book before starting it.  Having said that, I love MacDonald and the Lew Archer series.  Hands down one of the most entertaining detective writers of all time.  MacDonald's Archer books are what detective fiction should be.  Tough guys, hard times, conniving women... yet Lew Archer for all his tough outside won't take the easy money, couldn't live with himself if he turned his back on the junkie hooker.  I could start this book from the beginning after just finishing it, such a great read.
