Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! I hope there’s some green article of clothing you are wearing today, even if it’s only a couple of worn socks. And don’t be afraid to partake of traditional corned beef and cabbage for at least one meal before the sun sets again (I know I shall be doing that myself). Another way to celebrate this occasion might be to pick up a mystery novel related to St. Patrick’s Day. Janet Rudolph has assembled a list of them here. Meanwhile, Irish author Declan Burke catalogues interesting Irish crime novels, “aka ‘Emerald Noir’,” about which he has blogged since the start of 2014.
