Second Readings

The Rap Sheet isn’t contributing to today’s mix of “forgotten books” posts, but the series goes on nonetheless with the help of other bloggers.

Among this week’s crime-fiction picks are: The Long Saturday Night, by Charles Williams; Money to Burn, by Ricardo Piglia; Seven Slayers, by Paul Cain; The Habit of Fear, by Dorothy Salisbury Davis; The Hoods, by Harry Grey; Malay Woman, by A.S. Fleischman; The Small Hours of the Morning, by Margaret Yorke; The Greatest Crime, by Sloan Wilson; Plunder Squad, by Richard Stark; Mongoose, R.I.P., by William F. Buckley; Iron Lake, by William Kent Krueger; The Song Dog, by James McClure; Capture the Saint, by Burl Barer; Valediction, by Robert B. Parker; and Case for Three Detectives, by Leo Bruce. In addition, author Christopher Fowler--of Peculiar Crimes mysteries fame--has contributed a post to January Magazine about lost (and found) author Maryann Forrest.

Patti Abbott has a full list of today’s series participants in her own blog.
