A Tale of Two Detectives

When I first starting reading mystery novels, it was detective fiction that got me hooked and it still remains one of my favorite corners of the genre.

Two of the masters of the P.I. novel have books out this week: Lawrence Block and Robert Crais. Both have produced favorites of mine in the past and their latest books were high on my anticipation list.

My joint review of the two ran recently in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, my first review for that newspaper. (It will also be showing up a couple other places soon.)

For the record, I loved All the Flowers Are Dying (Block), but was disappointed by The Forgotten Man (Crais).
