Drawing favorable comparisons to Spenser and particularly Travis McGee, Caine's first appearance, 1996's Diamond Head, won the St. Martin's Press/Private Eye Writers of America Best First Mystery Novel Contest.
Caine's creator, Charles Knief, is a pretty interesting character himself. He's not only a consulting engineer, but an expert shot, a black belt in Kwan Cho Fa, and a mountain climber.
