I like stories NOT set in N.Y.C. or L.A. so James Lee Burke gets credit from me on that score alone.
I do think his earlier work is better than his later stuff.
I think Burke has the best titles for his books. I scan past them when I'm browsing, and 2 books later, I go, "What the. . . " and go back to take a second look. Everything a good title should do.
Lee Childs' "Reacher" books are candy. They aren't that good, but they are a lot of fun to read. Easy to put down, but just as easy to pick up again!
