Crimes of Quality

With summer finally having passed into autumn (darn those falling leaves!), people are starting to think about what to read when they’re forced to hunker down and wait out the cold months. Maybe everyone can take a few suggestions from those made by contributors to Patti Abbott’s continuing Friday “forgotten books” series. In addition to Art Taylor’s recommendation on this page of Room to Swing, by Ed Lacy, here are a few of the crime-fiction titles being touted around the blogosphere today: The Mediterranean Caper, by Clive Cussler; The Moonshine War, by Elmore Leonard; The Second Curtain, by Roy Fuller; The Glass Cell, by Patricia Highsmith; Tilt-a-Whirl, by Chris Grabenstein; Frank McAuliffe’s Augustus Mandrell series; Face of Evil, by John McPartland; Free Reign, by Rosemary Aubert; and--appropriate for this Man from U.N.C.L.E. celebration week--The Finger in the Sky Affair, by Peter Leslie.

Abbott presents a complete list of today’s series participants in her own blog, plus a few more fine reading choices, including Patrick Quentin’s Suspicious Circumstances.
