Publishers Weekly has one of the best articles on crime fiction that I've read in some time. It includes short pieces on a handful of "breakout" authors, including a few friends: Barry Eisler, Jon King, Jonnie Jacobs and Dave Corbett.

It also has some recommendations of new authors from established stars like Mike Connelly, Lee Child and Harlan Coben. Among the people they cite: David Corbett, Jim Abbott, Alafair Burke, Brian Wiprud, Chris Mooney and Eric Garcia.

It's so nice to see mysteries getting discussed in a serious and respectful way -- which is exactly what they deserve. This article is a must read! Check it out.
