Cross-section of Criminal Deeds

After dealing with some technical difficulties, British critic-author Mike Ripley is finally up with the packed May edition of his Shots column, “Getting Away with Murder.”

Not surprisingly, he begins with a tribute to his friend and recently deceased colleague, H.R.F. Keating. From there, he goes on to talk about the 60th anniversary of Josephine Tey’s The Daughter of Time, Goldsboro Books’ star-studded and forthcoming “Crime in the Court” event (June 21), foreign crime series on British television, the latest print-on-demand thrillers from Ostara Publishing, and new books from R.N. Morris, Michael Ridpath, and Roderic Jeffries.

You’ll find Ripley’s full and often funny column here.
