John Connolly: Dates for THE WOLF IN THE WINTER to...

Haunted P.I. Charlie Parker returns, on October 28th, in John Connolly’s THE WOLF IN THE WINTER. The community of Prosperous, Maine has always thrived when others have suffered. Its inhabitants are wealthy, its children’s future secure. It shuns outsiders. It guards its own. And at the heart of Prosperous lie the ruins of an ancient church, transported stone by stone from England centuries earlier by the founders of the town… But the death of a homeless man and the disappearance of his daughter draw the haunted, lethal private investigator Charlie Parker to Prosperous. Parker is a dangerous man, driven by compassion, by rage, and by...

Behind The Book: Michael H Rubin

Behind the Book: Why I Write Writing a thriller that gets positive reviews from magazines, journals, and best of all, readers, is the ultimate thrill for me. It’s a fantastic adrenaline rush, not that my life has been lacking in rushes. I’ve been a professional jazz pianist in the New Orleans French Quarter. I’ve been a TV announcer and radio host. I’m a public speaker and humorist who has given over 400 talks across the U.S., as well as in Canada and the U.K., to groups as large as 1,500. And I’m a lawyer who is often on the front line, representing my clients in major trials and appellate cases where bet-the-company issues are at stake....

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR DVD set for November ...

Robert Rodreguiz and Frank Miller have finally re-teamed and returned to the noir world of SIN CITY. A Dame To Kill For did not thrill audiences like the first film, but I still totally dug the style. Scandal, murder, betrayal and mystery surround the lives of several people who are swept up in a crime-filled underworld. Dwight McCarthy aides his former love interest, Ava Lord, to leave her abusive husband only to find himself caught up in a sinister plot. Meanwhile, a young man named Marv wakes up on a highway surrounded by dead bodies, with no memory of how he got there. In a nearby casino, a gambler named Johnny finds his luck takes a...

Tales from the Blue Line 26

You’re a small town police officer in the quiet mountain town of Boulder, Colorado. You have never investigated a major crime. After all, major crimes don’t occur in small towns. At least, not the type of major event programmed into the minds of average Americans. You may be the type of officer who peers into every possibility, in hopes that it could actually be the real deal…the big break you need to feel justified in being a serious man of the law. You could be the type who socializes with business owners and regular citizens- knowing the names of each person you pass on the street. Because, let’s face it- there will never be a real...

Pet Spotlight: Sara Paretsky

My girl Callie came to us when she was 10 weeks old. She was active, playful, lived to swim. Like all Goldens, she needed a lot of time with her people. If I was working too long and she was feeling lonely, she would hide something of mine, like a shoe, and then come stand in front of me, grinning, to let me know I had five minutes to find the object or she would chew it to bits. She was a total mama’s girl, stuck with me day and night, had a special nose-wrinkling look when she greeted the handful of people who mattered most to her. I took her swimming almost every morning (Lake Michigan is a 10-minute walk from my house.) My...

BRAVO By Greg Rucka

Growing up in Wisconsin every winter we spent a lot of time sledding. The anticipation while climbing a hill towing your sled, jumping on and grabbing the handles like your life depended on it, the rocketing down a slick hill that lasted for hours and seconds at the same time and then the end sitting there dazed and exhilarated wanting to do it again. THAT is what it’s like reading Greg Rucka. And in BRAVO the hill is a mile long and covered in ice. Make a pot of of coffee and grab on tight, you’re in for a Hell of a ride.
