Read AB's first, havn't made it to her latest. The Wombet read it recently and liked it. Guess I should have another look at some recent Hiasson.

Will check out Randy Wayne White, Jonesy. As you say, not much to laugh about in JLB writing. Damn he can be depressing. If I lived in Robicheaux's world I reckon I'd have kept right on drinking.

I've not been reading much fiction of late but I did read Jonathan Raban's "Foreign Land" recently. Again bleak. Wry sense of humour but overall bleak. I enjoyed it. Maybe that says something about my current head space.

Maybe I need to re-read some Wodehouse and lighten TFU ...
