Sue Grafton Remembered

The Alphabet Stops at Y. Y is for Yesterday. Thank you, lovely lady for all of the yesterdays you influenced and all of the tomorrows you will inspire. Sue Grafton has died. I’m not sure I can even process this news. I am definitely typing through tears. The lady has a singular place in this Mystery Fan’s heart. I am not alone. Millions of her books have sold to very loyal readers for 35 years now. It’s hard to believe A is for Alibi was first published in 1982. Harder still to know I almost missed it. But I didn’t. And I’m grateful. The...

Christmas Tomes To Get Ring In The Season

With the holiday season here, readers can find novels that blend a good mystery within the Christmas atmosphere. A word of warning, these are not “sugar and spice and everything nice” holiday books. Yet, they are very realistic, believable, and leave readers with a good feeling at the end, a feeling of faith and redemption. THE CHRISTMAS ROOM by Catherine Anderson is one of these special stories. Two holiday generational romances touch on grief, healing and redemption. Readers will go through a range of emotions with the characters from joy,...

An Interview with Laura Griffin

An Interview with Laura Griffin

Elise Cooper: Why did you decide to write a series centered on the SEAL community? Laura Griffin: I first became interested after reading some autobiographical books written by SEALs. I decided to have a SEAL character in the book, Beyond Limits, from my “Tracer Series.” I was lucky enough to view the training area in Coronado, touring the base and speaking with some retired SEALs. This allowed me to have a feel for the area of San Diego. This series is less about forensics and more of an action and adventure story. I hope this series...

THE LAST PLACE YOU LOOK by KRISTEN LEPIONKA

Minotaur Books 2017   Kristen Lepionka has introduced the world to Roxane Weary and made me love the PI genre all over again. Lepionka’s protagonist is a straight-up, no apologies Private Investigator in the fine tradition of Sam Spade, Philip Marlowe, and Jessica Jones. That is something that has seemed to be a rarity of late. She’s not an ex-military do-gooder, neither is she an un-licensed friend who is just trying to help out. She isn’t an ex-cop trying to live a peaceful life, and she sure isn’t a nosy reporter. These are all great...
