With Christmas approaching (all too rapidly!) next week, it looks as if today will be the last official “forgotten books” tribute occasion until the first Friday of next year, January 7. Fortunately, there are some fine gems among this morning’s book suggestions, which you can read more about during the coming, quieter holiday times.
In addition to Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s write-up, on this page, about An Unsuitable Job for a Woman, by P.D. James, crime fiction is well represented in Red Christmas, by Patrick Ruell; Red Diamond, Private Eye, by Mark Schorr; The Jones Men, by Verne E. Smith; Decoy, by Cleve F. Adams; Glitterburn, by Heywood Gould; A Touch of Death, by Charles Williams; The Crime at Diana’s Pool, by Victor Alonzo Whitechurch; Jake Strait, Bogeyman, by Frank Rich; Sleight of Body, by Ralph McInerney; Baby Moll, by John Farris; and several titles from John Dickson Carr.
A full accounting of today’s recommended reads is available in series organizer Patti Abbott’s personal blog.
