Review: "See Also Murder: A Marjorie Trumaine Mystery" by Larry D. Sweazy

Review: "The Crime Of Our Lives" by Lawrence Block

Noted crime writer, author, and much more, Lawrence Block avoids writing book reviews. He also prefers to write, if he is going to, about those authors that have departed. He explains why and more in the first section titled “Before We Begin” of The Crime of our Lives. While he won’t write reviews, he will write introductions to books which is what most of this book consists of— many of the various introductions he has written over the years.…
