Making the Scene

The winter 2008 edition of Mystery Scene is out. It includes profiles of Minette Walters (The Chameleon’s Shadow), Joan Druett (Deadly Shoals) and Cornelia Read (The Crazy School). There’s also a look back at the eighties television series Cagney & Lacey and a tribute to the top canine sleuth of all time, Scooby-Doo.

As always, there are lots of reviews, including a super one by Lynne Maxwell of Death Was the Other Woman. Any review that uses the words “stylish,” “elegant” and “atmospheric” has got to be good, and this one is. Here’s the first paragraph:
Judging from the cover art of Death Was the Other Woman I expected a hardcore, Depression-Era noir, but this stylish and atmospheric first-person mystery defies easy expectations. Instead of tough-guy prose and a private investigator protagonist, Linda L. Richards offers something terrifically different.

The whole review is here. Highlights of the rest of the issue are listed here.

I'm happy the great reviews are still pouring in. It couldn't happen to a nicer person.
