Perchance to Dream by Robert B. Parker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 stars, not for equaling Chandler, but for having tried it. In a way, all books are lesser than The Big Sleep.

The operational quote is, "The lack of omniscience in human institutions is not a curable flaw." How many 2000 page, unreadable, unread bills need to pass in congress for the groundlings to get that through their heads.
There is no statist remedy for the desperate future of the supremacist dream.
