On the CRACKER TV series: does anyone know the title of the episode in which
Fitz and the Manchester police are trying to track down a serial rapist, who
turns out to be a Jamaican expatriate, self-scarred in his youth with lye in
an attempt to become "whiter"?
 
On the depressed detective: I remember reading many years ago that Kenneth
Millar (Ross MacDonald), author of the Lew Archer series, had undergone a
psychological crisis in his thirties -- probably depressive -- was analyzed
successfully, and that the Archer novels thereafter owe their Oedipal thrust,
wrestling with contested paternity and paternal abandonment to the author's
personal crisis and its resolution. Anyone know more about this, including
sourcing?
 
Many thanks
