Seems like we are settling in for the long haul here. Maybe you’ll find some solace in the normalcy of routine. It’s Thursday, 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:
- Polygon has a good mix of old and new thrillers worth checking out on Netflix and Hulu. I knew or had seen most of these other than BURNING but would gladly watch most again.
- The Seattle Times recommends 5 streaming movies you can watch now based on crime fiction novels. No big surprises. OUT OF SIGHT or DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS are great re-watches.
- Some are using this quarantine time to dive into big epic books but if you want to go the other way, here are 20 books across genres including many small mysteries that you can read in a day or two.
A couple quotes from King’s THE STAND because….you know:
- “No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become. No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell. There are no maps of the change. You just come out the other side. Or you don’t.”
- “The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance…logic can be happily tossed out the window.”
- In the last two weeks, the only time I’ve been out of the house is to walk the dog. What are the best crime fiction audiobooks that you’ve listened to?
Until next Thursday, happy reading,
Author the Max Strong thriller series
