Day #22,179

Walk km 11,703-11,710: Meetup mural walk
loaded down car
approx km 11,706 McLean Drive

Book #430: Operation Stranglehold  (1973, Dan J Marlowe)

Not nearly as good as "The Vengeance Man". This is an entry in the Earle Drake series. It appears that Earle is closely related to Donald E Westlake's "Parker". Both live outside the law and are totally ruthless. At least Parker is - Drake talks the talks but he's a bit of a softie underneath.
Dan J Marlowe ain't a bad writer but he's no Donald E Westlake.
