INTERVIEW WITH JOSEPH FINDER

HOUSE ON FIRE by Joseph Finder brings back private investigator Nick Heller.

5 Things I Learned from Writing Crime Fiction by Erica Spindler

THE LOOK-ALIKE is my twenty-third, full length suspense novel. I’ve written in other genres, but my life’s work has been devoted to crime fiction: thriller, romantic suspense, woman in jeopardy, supernatural thriller, police procedural, mystery, and with THE LOOK-ALIKE, the domestic thriller as well. I’ve explored them all, often threading together elements of the various sub-genres. Twenty-three, full-length novels. How many pages is that? How many words? Do I count rough drafts? How about pages, paragraphs and recently my entire...

When she sees pictures of men who were involved in her past, she hesitates to share that...

INTERVIEW WITH DEBRA H. GOLDSTEIN

Debra H Goldstein’s new series, Sarah Blair Mysteries, is a fast-moving, intriguing plot set in the world of food.

These first two books have the main protagonist, Sarah Blair, trying to defend family members of murder.  First her sister is accused, and in the second book her mother.  Sarah would rather catch bad guys than slave over a hot stove, and she seems to be good at being an amateur sleuth. The plot of One Taste Too Many explains how...

Behind the Book with Peter Robinson

Perhaps this column should really be called BEHIND THE BOOKS, as Many Rivers to Cross is the second in a proposed trilogy. Publishers are wary of promoting trilogies until they are finished for two reasons: first, the author might never finish the third book, and second, people might be put off buying books two and three unless they have read book one. I tried to get around that problem by having each book include a mystery of its own, which takes up the majority of the space, as well as an ongoing story to be told in stages throughout the...
