Departure time. My favourite current mass market paperback series is no more. The 66th and last book in the Hard Case Crime series has just been published - Murder Is My Business by Brett Halliday. The series lasted six years, publishing both reprints and PBOs. Here are a couple of the Lawrence Block HCC reprints with the PBOs. The titles for both books have been changed to the author's preferred. The second book has the pseudonym replaced.
