So, maybe we can get together once a week, you think? I feel like I do all the talking, and well, what can I say?
Bookreporter.com calls Greg Rucka “the thriller genre’s most fearless writer,” and his latest, Private Wars, will be out in October 25. Bookreporter has 20 reader copies to give away, so get yours by emailing SuspenseThriller@bookreporter.com with your name and mailing address before September 23, 2005.
And one of my favorite authors, P.D. James, has a new one out in November, The Lighthouse. I can’t wait to see what happens between Adam Dalgliesh and Emma Lavenham. I read this quote about her last book, The Murder Room, and I think holds up for most of her novels. “Dalgliesh is one of the smartest, gentlest and most restrained cops to ever adorn a page. Moreover, every character, even minor characters, come across as fully realized.” I like that.
D’you remember Patricia Cornwell (I wonder if she’d mind being called Patty?) wrote one on Jack the Ripper a few years ago? Well, she spent thousands of pounds on a couple ads in two British newspapers to say she is right about who the Ripper is and people ought to come up with evidence to prove her wrong. What I read says she’s spent $6,000,000 on an investigation and that she’ll come out with a revised book next year.
Well, that’s enough from me. I’ll see you again soon, okay?
