This week,  Crimespree magazine, in conjunction with Friday Reads Facebook page, is offering you a chance to win a copy of WILDE LAKE by Laura Lippman   WILDE LAKE Luisa “Lu” Brant is the newly elected—and first female—state’s attorney of Howard County, Maryland, a job in which her widower father famously served. Fiercely intelligent and ambitious, she sees an opportunity to make her name by trying a mentally disturbed drifter accused of beating a woman to death in her home.

Flashback: Laura Lippman interviews James Crumley

Orignally run in Crimespree issue 15 November 2006 Laura Lippman interviews James Crumley I first met James Crumley in the Bahamas in 2000. That makes it sound a lot more interesting than it was.
