In this farewell post, author David Isaak points to this 2007 piece from fellow novelist Tim Stretton.  Tim’s brief post covers, among other things, what lessons aspiring writers can learn from The Hunter.

For example:

Stark/Westlake almost always nailed that one, and The Hunter is a vivid example.
