Crider's new novel is Between the Living and the Dead, the 22nd Dan Rhodes Mystery.
Recently I asked the author about what he was reading. His reply:
I just finished reading a big fat “flintlock fantasy” called Cold Iron. This isn’t my usual kind of reading, but I’ve known the author, Stina Leicht, for several years and I enjoyed her two earlier novels. I enjoyed this one, too. It’s the first in a trilogy, so I’ll now wait for the sequels. When I finished reading that over-600-pages book, I read Gil Brewer’s Gun the Dame Down, which is part of a triple-decker Brewer treat from Stark House. It’s only 60 pages long, which is more my kind of length. It’s a very hard-boiled private-eye novel that hits all the requisite notes. And right now I’m about halfway through Go Set a Watchman, the Harper Lee novel that’s been raising such a fuss. I’ve found a lot to like about it.Learn more about the book and author at Bill Crider's website and blog.
