Profusion Reigns

A new month, a new installment of “Getting Away with Murder,” British critic-author Mike Ripley’s column in Shots. Among the topics under discussion this time: John le Carre’s just-released novel, Our Kind of Traitor (“Le Carré’s writing is a world, possibly a galaxy, away from much of the ham-fisted, thick-eared prose which seems to be required for many a ‘thriller’ these days …”); Joseph Wambaugh’s forthcoming Hollywood Hills; publisher Serpent’s Tail’s resurrection of Horace McCoy’s novels; and Louisiana detective Dave Robicheaux’s candidacy as the “most slappable hero in crime fiction.” You’ll find it all here.
