“Getting Away” Comes Back

Although its appearance was delayed by a couple of weeks (no doubt a subject that the author is contractually forbidden from explaining), Mike Ripley’s January “Getting Away with Murder” column for Shots is nonetheless welcome. Among its contents are notes about Hammond Innes’ 1951 thriller, Air Bridge; the December demise of “cult American crime writer” Andrew Vachss; a recently released collection of eye-catching Hank Janson cover art; the forthcoming (on January 21) Netflix release of Munich: The Edge of War, based on Robert Harris’ fine 2017 novel, Munich; plus fresh fiction from Stella Rimington, Liam McIlvanney, Sophie Hannah, Bill James, and others.
