Great News! A New Brent Ghelfi Novel! A New Lawrence Block Novel!


The Burning Lake by Brent Ghelfi. The fourth Ghelfi novel featuring Alexei "Volk" Volkovoy. Volk is a troubleshooter for the the Russian Army and his shadowy general. Ghelfi takes the modern Russian problems of graft, corruption and crime and perfectly ties them into each Volk novel.

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo. A crime novel set in Oslo. A woman goes missing in November and police investigator Harry Hole is on the job. Nesbo has gotten some great reviews by Anthony Neil Smith.
I have had a recent compulsion to type in Anthony Neil Smith. I think it is because I know that every time I type in "Anthony Neil Smith" the real Anthony Neil Smith will improve my website statistics by reading what is being written about him. Anthony Neil Smith. I used to have this same compulsion for Bill Crider. Bill Crider.

A Drop of the Hard Stuff by Lawrence Block. A new Matt Scudder novel. Everything I know about Alcoholics Anonymous I learned from Block's Scudder novels. Scudder attends at least one AA meeting a day while working as an unlicensed PI in Manhattan. Block has a new author photo. The photo has Block without glasses and sporting a van Dyke beard and mustache.

Buried Prey by John Sandford. Is Sandford getting ghost help on these? He is certainly cranking them out. Someone mentioned to me that they heard a Sandford interview recently. I think it was on Minnesota Public Radio but I am not sure.

Get Maitland by James Patrick Hunt. Another novel featuring former bounty hunter and current art dealer, Maitland. Maitland takes a job to rare antique in London. Maitland gets framed for murder instead.
