Many Happy Returns

After detouring last week into the subject of favorite books from childhood, Patti Abbott’s Friday “forgotten books” series is back on track for its last official installment of 2009.

Among the crime novels mentioned this week: A Slice of Death, by Bob McKnight; The Blackheath Poisonings, by Julian Symons; Flight to Darkness, by Gil Brewer; Fires That Destroy, by Harry Whittington; Death Is a Red Rose, by Dorothy Eden; Home Is the Prisoner, by Jean Potts; and the not-so-forgotten The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (part III of Scott D. Parker’s “examination of the four Sherlock Holmes novels in advance of the new movie debuting on Christmas Day”).

Series organizer Patti Abbott hosts a few other picks (among them William Peter Blatty’s The Ninth Configuration) in her own blog, plus a full list of today’s contributors.
