A Backlog of Books

In addition to Rob Kantner’s Rap Sheet write-up about Death of a Citizen, by Donald Hamilton, this “forgotten books Friday” offers a flood of posts elsewhere about overlooked older titles. Among the picks: Icebreaker, by John Gardner; The Gutter and the Grave, by Ed McBain; Last Bus to Woodstock, by Colin Dexter; Dying to Sing, by Meg Chittenden; Odds Against Tomorrow, by William P. McGivern; Odds Against Linda, by Steve Ward (what’s with the “Odds Against” repetition?); A Nickel Jackpot, by J.J. Lamb; Murder Rehearsal, by Roger East; and The Complete Brandstetter, by Joseph Hansen.

On top of all those, Patti Abbott hosts a couple of forgotten books plugs in her own blog, plus a round-up of where you can read all of today’s posts in this series.
