“That’s Enough Crucifixion, Thank You”

Clever columnist and author Mike Ripley (The Legend of Hereward the Wake) is back with the August installment of “Getting Away with Murder,” his ever-readable contribution to the e-zine Shots. This month’s subjects include the sudden proliferation of crucifixion as a fictional homicide technique; Cath Staincliffe’s latest case for Manchester P.I. Sal Kilkenny, Missing; a recent gathering of crime concocters in Cambridge, England; and his lament (relative to the recent Dagger Awards presentations, which saw only a single Briton walk away with a prize) that “British crime writing seems in danger of becoming a minority sport.” Read the column in its entirety here.
