Following last Friday’s hiatus from the “forgotten books” series, The Rap Sheet is back today with Tony Black’s recommendation of He Died with His Eyes Open, by Derek Raymond.
Meanwhile, there’s lots of older crime fiction being touted elsewhere on the Web. Look for write-ups about Dick Tracy, by William Johnston; Roadside Night, by Erwin N. Nistler and Gerry P. Broderick; Murder Wears a Halo, by Howard Browne; The Tooth and the Nail, by Bill S. Ballinger; A Different Kind of Summer, by Gwendoline Butler; The Case of the Velvet Claws, by Erle Stanley Gardner; Dr. Syn Returns, by Russell Thorndike; Love & Glory, by Robert B. Parker; and The Satan Bug, by Alistair MacLean. Scott D. Parker has reviewed A Study in Scarlet, by Arthur Conan Doyle, to start his miniseries about the (not so forgotten) Sherlock Holmes novels. And Martin Edwards is touting a non-fiction book this week, Detective Fiction: The Collector’s Guide, by John Cooper and B.A. Pike.
Series organizer Patti Abbott offers more reading suggestions in her own blog, plus a list of all of today’s participating bloggers.
