Drive-By Dorothy Praise: Reese

Is Dorothy not the most outstanding, as well as most prolific, writer of Captain Joe Reese?  Is there anyone who does Reese better?  I've been rereading Dorothy's 1998 FK novel "Evidence" (which I've requested permission to officially recommend on Bright Knight for February, but of course have not yet heard back because I asked only yesterday) and while there are many aspects on which to comment, including a nice recognition of Natalie's accumulated traumas, I am once again bowled over by her spot-on rendering of Captain Reese.
