A lot of books get praise claiming a book to be a "non stop page turner" and "impossible to put down." Well, Huston's books are the real deal. They're not too short but just long enough that you really invest yourself into them.

Would you put No Dominion over Already Dead alleyway?
I have never heard of this guy. Checked it out on Amazon and it looks interesting. What book do you guys suggest is a good starting point?

You don't like to read or are afraid to read?

The first I checked out (and the first of the Joe Pitt books) is Already Dead, and the start of the Hank Thompson trilogy is Caught Stealing...so you can really start with either of those and not be lost. If you start with another...I can't make the same guarantee.

Is "What side are you on?" a catch phrase of his or something?

Otherwise, I guess I'm missing the context.

Battle Royale (for a second time) by Koushun Takami. Swan Song by Robert McCammon is still my favorite "horror" book
