Following a brief hiatus to accommodate the holidays, the very popular “forgotten books” series has returned to the Web--if not with a vengeance, then at least with verve.
In addition to Kevin McCarthy’s remarks on this page about New Hope for the Dead, by Charles Willeford, today’s Web-wide crime-fiction-associated suggestions include: Fire in the Flesh, by David Goodis; Murder Among Friends, by Elizabeth Ferrars; Halo in Blood, by John Evans; Hag’s Nook, by John Dickson Carr; Dreadful Sanctuary, by Eric Frank Russell; Dreamsicle, by W.L. Ripley; The Ax, by Donald E. Westlake; A Dream of Drowned Hollow, by Lee Barwood; the Harry Fannin novels, by David Markson; “A” Is for Alibi, by Sue Grafton; Paper Doll, by Robert B. Parker; and Suspects, by David Thomson.
