Treasured Tomes

The Friday “forgotten books” train continues chugging right along, today picking up a new array of crime-fiction recommendations, including: Assignment: Budapest, by Edward S. Aarons; Night Never Ends, by Frederick Lorenz; Through a Glass Darkly, by Helen McCloy; Peeper, by Loren D. Estleman; The Red Citroën, by Timothy Williams; The Distant Echo, by Val McDermid; One for Hell, by Jada M. Davis; Cruel Cuts, by J.R. Lindermuth; The Double Take, by Roy Huggins; At Death’s Door, by Robert Barnard; The Green Ripper, by John D. MacDonald; The Secret Adversary, by Agatha Christie; The Recycled Citizen, by Charlotte MacLeod; R.T.M. Scott’s Secret Service Smith stories; J.J. Montague’s Black Swan series; and The Crime of My Life, a short-story collection edited by Brian Garfield.

Oh, and of course I wrote about Alistair MacLeans Breakheart Pass in The Rap Sheet. You will find that piece here.

Series organizer Patti Abbott has listed all of today’s participating critics in her own blog, where she also features an endorsement of the not-so-forgotten but still terrific Murder on the Yellow Brick Road, by Stuart M. Kaminsky.
