And we’re back! After a week’s impromptu vacation—necessitated by other work demands—I have returned with a new Kirkus Reviews column. My subject this time is summer crime novels, 20 of them to be exact. Among the books I suggest your checking out over the next three warm months are tales by Walter Mosley, both Megan Abbott and Patricia Abbott, Michael Harvey, James Sallis, Peter Lovesey, and Laura McHugh.
