Speaking of Mysteries is taking a short break to catch up on its reading and to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday.
In the next few weeks we plan to have interviews with Pulitzer Prize winning author Julia Keller (A Killing in the Hills, Bitter River) to talk about Summer of the Dead, the third mystery in her series about Acker’s Gap, West Virginia Prosecutor Bell Elkins.
SoM also plans to talk to Charles Cumming about his newest thriller, A Colder War. Ex-MI6 agent Tom Kell, still on the road to redemption, is back working for his former employers in the politically charged atmosphere of Turkey. The novel has been out in the UK since April, but is due to be released stateside in mid-August.
David Rosenfelt newest novel, Hounded, featuring attorney—and dog lover—Andy Carpenter, is due out July 22. SoM plans to speak to him in early August.
We have other asks out as well, including Becky Masterman, whose first mystery, Rage Against the Dying, was nominated for an Edgar Award this year.
