Week two of summer school. I’ve successfully got both girls to at least start their summer reading. No issue on my end, I’ve already read Phantom Prey, The Janes, and Blue Heaven to start the season with a bang!

Let’s get to it. Here’s the most crime fiction news per word on the web.


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






Two quotes from King’s Bill Hodges trilogy:

  • “Hodges has read there are wells in Iceland so deep you can drop a stone down them and never hear the splash. He thinks some human souls are like that.”
  • “It’s easy—too easy—to either disbelieve or disregard someone you dislike.”



  • I viscerally remember sweating in a beach chair and being unable to move until I finished reading Flynn’s Gone Girl. What is your most memorable summer beach read?


Until next Thursday, happy reading,


Author the Max Strong thriller series
