Killer on the Road
I’ve written a piece on James Ellroy’s overlooked novel Killer on the Road for the blog LaeLand. The editor of LaeLand, Lae Monie, has also kindly published an author spotlight piece on me. You can read it here.
On a different subject, fellow VV contributor Chris Routledge has republished Simon Nash’s Dead of a Counterplot (1962). Nash was the pseudonym of Raymond Chapman, and Dead of a Counterplot was the first of five novels featuring academic and amateur detective Adam Ludlow. I read Dead of a Counterplot this weekend and found it to be a thoroughly entertaining combination of mystery and good humour. I can’t wait to read the next four in the series. You can find out more details of this project on Chris’ blog.
