January 7th, 2021
And we are back with the first post of crime fiction links and news for the new year. A commitment to keeping this going each week is just one of my 2021 goals.
Let’s get to it.
Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:
- The adaptation of Jane Harper’s first Aaron Falk, THE DRY, with Eric Bana had a great premiere in Australia. Still no word if/when/how we might see it in the US.
- ABR looks at some of the ongoing and popular mystery and thriller series returning this winter. Personally, I’m looking forward to the next installment of Orphan X and Peter Ash in January and IQ in February.
- CrimeReads looks at Hemingway’s politics and prose coalescing in his only crime novel.
Two quotes from Australian thriller writer Jane Harper this week:
“To look out and see not another soul between you and the horizon could be a strange and disturbing sight.”
“Life out here is hard. We all try to get through the best way we can. But trust me, there’s not a single person here who isn’t lying to themselves about something.”
- What is your favorite Australian crime book? Garry Disher, Peter Temple and Candice Fox jump to mind along with Jane Harper. What do you think?
Until next Thursday, happy reading,
