Crooked Numbers, the second book in the Raymond Donne series, has just been released.
Recently I asked O’Mara about what he was reading. His reply:
I’m almost through with Otto Penzler’s latest anthology, Kwik Krimes. Otto got over 80 writers, none of whom were me, to submit crime stories no longer than 1,000 words in length. Sounds gimmicky, I know, but it is a lesson in the economical use of words. Some of my new friends in the mystery world have entries: Lyndsay Faye, Jim Fusilli, Chris Grabenstein, and one by Reed Farrell Coleman that reads like a punch in the face. (In a good way.)Visit Tim O'Mara's website, Facebook page, and Twitter perch.
Were I to blurb this book, it would go something like this: “For every mystery reader who’s ever wanted a good story they could start—and finish—in the smallest room of the house and for every mystery writer who suffers from verbal diarrhea. The perfect book for those looking to poop and get off the pot!”
