You Must Read These

In association with the release of Books to Die For: The World’s Greatest Mystery Writers on the World’s Greatest Mystery Novels, edited by John Connolly and Declan Burke (due out later this month in the UK, but not until October in the States), busy Shotsmag Confidential contributor Ayo Onatade asked “a number of well-known bloggers and reviewers” covering the crime-fiction beat to submit short write-ups about mystery and thriller works they think other people really ought to be reading.

I’m not sure how many posts are scheduled in this series, but already Onatade has rolled out five good ones: Barry Forshaw on The Ministry of Fear, by Graham Greene; Peter Rosovsky on Roses, Roses, by Bill James; Sander Verheijen on Wicker, by Kevin Guilfoile; Ali Karim on The Silence of the Lambs, by Thomas Harris; and my own humble submission about The Eighth Circle, by Stanley Ellin.

Future entries should appear here.
