  1. I never warmed up to the crime novels but sure did like the westerns. I wish he had written more of them. My favorite was the first: The Bounty Hunters.

    I like both his crime thrillers and his westerns.

    But I've noted here before that most westerns are in fact crime stories with an historical backdrop. Most westerns involve lawmen and outlaws, after all.
