From the Blogosphere
I’ve had very little time for blogging recently because I’ve been swamped with work, but I thought I might share some links to blog articles that have caught my eye on the web lately:
Over at the Rap Sheet, Ali Karim reviews the debut novel, Spycatcher, by former SIS officer Matthew Dunn.
Megan Abbott has been on tour promoting her latest novel, The End of Everything. On her blog she gives some thoughts on real-life missing children cases that may, or may not, have been an influence on the novel.
If like me you’re obsessed with all things related to the Black Dahlia case, then you might be interested to read Black Dahlia Avenger author Steve Hodel’s brief obituary of LAPD Homicide Detective Ed Jokisch, the last surviving member of the original 1947 investigation.
This is not particularly recent but Crimeculture has been publishing a series of interviews that Charles Rzepka has been conducting with King of American Crime Fiction, Elmore Leonard. These have to be amongst the most in-depth interviews Leonard has ever given.
At The Crime of it All Len Wanner has posted an excellent interview with Smokeheads author Doug Johnstone.
