Step Up to Mike

While I wasn’t watching, British critic-boulevardier Mike Ripley slipped a new edition of his “Getting Away with Murder” column into Shots. This month’s smorgasbord of crime-fiction news and witticisms includes notes about Tuscany’s Chianti Crime Festival, Brighton’s Dark & Stormy Crime Festival, the Hank Janson pulp thrillers, the recent death of Roy Peter Martin (“the crime writer and reviewer better known under his writing names of James Melville and Hampton Charles”), and new works by both John Harvey and Ray Celestin. Click here to read about those subjects and more.
