Reading the Past

Although The Rap Sheet isn’t contributing today to the Friday “forgotten books” series, there are still plenty of recommendations being made. Here are some of the crime-fiction-related reading choices: The Third Man, by Graham Greene; The Case of the Caretaker’s Cat, by Erle Stanley Gardner; Dover One, by Joyce Porter; Which I Never, by L.A.G. Strong; The Tavern, by Orrie Hitt; Crown: The Sweet and Sour Kill, by Terry Harknett; The One Minute Assassin, by Troy Cook; Point Blank, by Richard Stark; and The Stone Hawk, by Gwen Moffat. In addition, blogger Evan Lewis writes about the Odyssey Publications pulp collections, and Glenn Harper offers a week’s worth of posts covering the solo novels of Per Wahlöö (see here, here, here, and here).

Series organizer serves up a few extra old-book touts in her own blog, as well as a rundown of all of today’s participating blogs.
