I don’t think I necessarily have great book ideas. But I do work at what I have for a long time. Then I do it again. I’m in the middle of the fifth (and final) revision of the fifth Max book. I keep working and whittling until only the good stuff remains. You might not start with a good idea but you can work it into a good result.

It’s slow and plodding, but it can work. Good ideas don’t always come in a flash.

Ok, let’s get to it.

Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:



  • If you stuck with TRUE DETECTIVE through 3 seasons, it looks like you may be rewarded with a fourth, but perhaps without Nic Pizzolatto’s involvement. Maybe a good thing at this point?



Remember that summer when Matthew McConaughey and TRUE DETECTIVE took over:

  • “This is a world where nothing is solved. You know, someone once told me time is a flat circle. Everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over and over again.”
  • “The world needs bad men. We keep other bad men from the door.”




  • Did you watch season 2 of True Detective? 


Until next Thursday, happy reading,


Author the Max Strong thriller series
