Evan Hunter's short story "Return" was adapted as an episode of the HBO series FALLEN ANGELS. Titled "Love and Blood", the story is about ex-private eye turned drunk Matt Cordell. In the show Cordell is an ex-boxer, but otherwise a pretty faithful adaption. It can be seen here: http://vimeo.com/41374988

.....and I'm back....

Hi JP et al, I'm currently working my way through all of Lee Child's Reacher series and then it's a toss up between Michael Connelly's two series or Ian Rankin's two series.....and together, all three authors' output adds up to about half of that of McBain/Hunter/Abbott/Marston/Cannon etc, etc.

Took me 20 minutes to remember my password to log back in, it's been a while.
