PaperBack: “A World the Color of Salt”

Part of a series honoring the late author and blogger Bill Crider.

A World the Color of Salt, by Noreen Ayres (Avon, 1994). Written by an Edgar Award finalist, this was the first of three novels starring Samantha “Smokey” Brandon, an ex-Las Vegas stripper and forensic pathologist in Orange County, California, the other two being Carcass Trade (1994) and The Juan Doe Murders (2000). The last of those was reissued by Brash Books in 2014. Cover art by Jerry LoFaro, whose original illustration can be seen here.
