Robin Jarossi replied to Noir Nation's discussion Crime Fiction and Literary Style
"The Friends of Eddie Coyle seems to me to be stylistically really strong.   It's not just the brilliant dialogue, but the way the authorial voice is usually absent, allowing the narrative to unfold so that the reader is alone in working…"

Lee Child was undoubtedly the star of this weekend's Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival. Not only did he win Crime Novel of the Year for 61 Hours, but half of Yorkshire seemed to be packed into the assembly rooms at the Old Swan Hotel (where Agatha Christie hid out) to hear his Room 101 routine with…See More

• Crime Zapper – Ciao, Zen; Emerald Noir •

• The Twitter-verse is a-flutter with the news that Zen is already sleeping with the fishes after just three pretty well-received episodes, thanks to the BBC's new godfather of BBC1, Danny Cohen. It pulled in a good average audience of 5.7m viewers, and got warm reviews, the Mail on Sunday calling it, 'compelling, stylish and intelligent' (see…See More

Hi Robin,

Thank you for the contact. Spongebob Squarepants is a personal hero too!

Cheers, Mark

Re: going to Royal Festival Hall, and Kubrick's 2001. Went to the RFH once and loved it, tho I was a bit jetlagged, had just arrived. Noticed you like Spongebob Squarepants. Wonder what Kurbrick might have done with that!

Also, don't know if you get Dexter (TV show) in the UK. Incredible show, but you've probably heard about it: serial killer POV, who kills yeah other serial killers.

We're celebrating turkey day (aka Thanksgiving) over here this week.

Do you have a sample of Cheetah anywhere. I put the first chapter of my New Orleans suspense thriller (and my book trailer) on my website.

Cheers,
Susan

Still trying to promote my political thriller 1/1:Jihad-Britain, it's an uphill struggle in the UK with so few places prepared to review. So sad when I think of the work that went into this one and the fact that it is so current. Still. I expect I will get over it providing your blog brings you in some returns keep it up.

Awesome blogsite Robin, now I know why you don't find time to review. If I can figure out how I would like to check it out everytime you update. Best of luck with it and I hope it does you a lot of favours.

Hi Robin thanks for the 'friending'.

Thanks for the friend invite, Robin. Your thriller sounds like an interesting and exciting read. If you like police procedurals, check out John Santana, my Colombian born homicide detective in White Tombs and The Black Minute. The third book in the series, Bad Weeds Never Die, will be released next year.

Oops, didn't notice you liked Kubrick. I'm a big fan of his also. Love how he uses music to accompany certain scenes ... raping to Rossini in Clockwork Orange, and the wonderful Shostakovitch waltz in Eyes Wide Shut when Nicole K is dancing with the seductive Count.

Hi Robin, happy to make your acquaintance. Yeah, I love that Reacher guy. Hope you'll check out MY guy, New Orleans PD homicide detective Frank Renzi, in my suspense thriller ABSOLUTION.

Incidentally, tho I haven't been there for a while, I've been to London a few times and enjoyed it a lot. Great art museums and concert halls.

Cheers,
Susan
