Back from Obscurity

Soon on this page, you’ll see appear Jim Napier’s appreciation of The Labyrinth Murders, by Anthony Price. For now, though, you’ll just have to be content with today’s other “forgotten books” recommendations of crime, mystery, and thriller works: The Bait, by Dorothy Uhnak; Miss Hargreaves, by Frank Baker; Killers Are My Meat, by Stephen Marlowe; Thou Shell of Death, by Nicholas Blake; Down There, by David Goodis; Kill Your Darlings, by Terence Blacker; An Eye for an Eye, by Leigh Brackett; the provocatively titled Sin Is a Redhead, by Steve Harragan; A Perfectly Proper Murder, by Harold Adams; Shella, by Andrew Vachss; Hard Man, by Allan Guthrie; Rogue Male, by Geoffrey Household; Now You’re One of Us, by Asa Nonami; Hellcats and Honeygirls, by Lawrence Block and Donald E. Westlake; the hideously named Death Reign of the Vampire King, by Grant Stockbridge; Monsieur Pamplemousse Takes the Cure, by Michael Bond; and The Monkey’s Raincoat, by Robert Crais.

Patti Abbott has a full list of today’s participating critics in her own blog, plus two more oft-neglected novels worth tracking down.
