This week seems to offer a particularly rich crop of “forgotten books” posts. Among the crime-fiction recommendations are: The Open Shadow, by Brad Solomon; The Chocolate Cobweb, by Charlotte Armstrong; The Clue of the Forgotten Murder, by Erle Stanley Gardner; The Virgin Kills, by Raoul Whitfield; Trent Intervenes, by E.C. Bentley; The Last Llanelli Train, by Robert Lewis; Come Seven, Come Death, edited by Henry Morrison; Target of Opportunity, by Max Byrd; Cocaine Nights, by J.G. Ballard; Slayground, by Richard Stark; Speaking of Murder, edited by Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenburg; Pastime, by Robert B. Parker; several “sexpionage novels” that you’ve probably never heard of before; and David Saunders’ biography of his artist father, Norman Saunders.
