Lazy Sunday Service

So, Stiffed was released on Tuesday and has made its way off into the world.  A short extract can be found on the Spinetingler Mag website.  A post on the origins of the story is up on Patti Abbott's blog.  Margot Kinberg discusses the book and screwball crime fiction in general on her blog, Confessions of a Mystery Novelist.  Thanks also to Peggy Ann at Peggy Ann's Post and Declan Burke at Crime Always Pays for the shoutouts.

I picked up two historical crime novels written by Irish authors for the bargain price of five euro yesterday, Zugzwang by Ronan Bennett and Elegy for April by Benjamin Black.  Unfortunately they were bought from a bookstore closing down and selling off its last stock.  A bitter sweet purchase, but I'm looking forward to reading both books in the coming weeks.

I'm still a little bit behind on my reviewing.  Expect reviews of Bob Burke's The Third Pig Detective Agency, Stephan Talty's Black Irish and Andrea Camilleri's The Dance of the Seagull in the next few days.
