Disillusioned, brooding Reno, Nevada private eye and bailbondsman JACK ROSS is prone to taking off into the desert, to regroup, brood some more, and try to come to terms with the emptiness and violence that seems to plague him, in the literate, powerful The Big Silence (1989). At the end of that book, he decides to chuck it all, including his P.I. and bailbonding agencies, and head off into the desert, but he has since returned at least twice more.
Schopen's description's of the desert are quite something, powerful and sometimes disturbing. A great series, well-written. Think of them as Desert Noir. Recommended.
