From the author of the new novel, The Kings of Cool, comes something else pretty cool. For Publishers Weekly, Don Winslow has named his five favorite crime novels as follows:
• The Friends of Eddie Coyle, by George Higgins
• The Long Goodbye, by Raymond Chandler
• The Guards, by Ken Bruen
• L.A. Confidential, by James Ellroy
• Laguna Heat, by T. Jefferson Parker
You’ll find Winslow’s enthusiastic remarks about each book here.
