In my humble opinion, there was no better writer of crime fiction than John D. MacDonald. If you’re a fan, you understand. If you like Stephen King or appreciate films like Mystic River (based on Dennis Lehane’s excellent novel) or revel in the dense plotting of The Wire’s good bad-guys and bad good-guys and haven’t yet discovered MacDonald then spend some time over at Steve Scott’s fantastic site, The Trap of Solid Gold. Let Mr. Scott, who seriously knows his stuff, fill you in:

My name is Steve Scott and I've been a reader of the works of author John D MacDonald for over 35 years. In 1981 I had the privilege of assisting Walter and Jean Shine by doing research for a second edition of their definitive Bibliography of MacDonald's novels and short stories. John was an incredibly prolific author of primarily crime and mystery fiction and, between 1946 and 1986, published nearly 400 stories and over 65 novels. I hope to use this blog to share some of my knowledge, opinions, information and artwork from an old and dusty collection of JDM stuff.

Go fall into The Trap of Solid Gold.
