Three New Novels From Long Gone Crime Writers
Steve Stephens at the Columbus Dispatch wrote a piece on the new novels from three deceased crime writers.
Famous crime-fiction scribbler James M. Cain, dead for 35 years, has a new book out, as do two other stiffs you might have heard of: Dashiell Hammett and Mickey Spillane.
It’s no mystery why publishers would want stories from guys who, although their bodies are as cold as yesterday’s cheese sandwich, still have reputations as hot as the troubled dame who always seems to enter the picture.
You can read the rest of the piece via the below link:
Note: I have all three crime novels - Dashiell Hammett's Return of the Thin Man, James M. Cain's The Cocktail Waitress, and Mickey Spillane and Max Allan Collin's Lady, Go Die - on a table in my basement office and I look forward to reading them and reviewing them here in the near future.
