Let’s just get right to it. Maybe these little links can provide some distraction from the US political news and the COVID numbers.
Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:
- Wish there was one dedicated to just mystery and thrillers but this is a fun read over a cup of coffee: 50 intriguing first sentences from 2020 books.
- Book Riot highlights 8 mysteries/thrillers by Black authors. Lots of great writers on the list, plus some new to me to check out. CUTTING SEASON is still my favorite Locke book.
- Walter Mosley is set to receive the Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation this year and here are 6 picks from the Easy Rawlins mystery series that will “change your life in a good way.”
Two quotes from Walter Mosley:
- “A man’s bookcase will tell you everything you’ll ever need to know about him.”
- “Love makes you blind to your own survival. And if it doesn’t then it’s not love at all.”
- What’s your favorite political thriller or suspense title? I’d go for DAY OF THE JACKAL or ABSOLUTE POWER.
Until next Thursday, happy reading,
Author the Max Strong thriller series
