Down & Out Books May 1st, 2017   S.W. Lauden is having fun. After he debuted in 2015 with the excellent BAD CITIZEN CORPORATION, which stars punk rocker-turned cop Greg Salem, Lauden has constantly changed up his formula. Where the Greg Salem series is a hard-hitting punk concoction of California grit, sunshine, music, and murder, his excellent Tommy & Shayna Crime Capers operate on a different level.

FIVE CLUES THAT YOU’RE READING A BRIAN FREEMAN THRILLER

• THE WEATHER IS BAD One of the many things that impresses me about Michael Connelly is that he manages to bring drama and suspense to Los Angeles, where the sun is always shining. You’d think that the criminals would simply put down their guns and say, “Wow, what a gorgeous day. Let’s go to the beach.” My own criminals (and heroes) have to slog through truly awful weather.
