The Top Ten Mystery Shows Ever Ever Ever

Let me start here: I expect you to disagree with me. I expect you to argue.

I also expect that there are those out there who are rolling their eyes, thinking that I should be talking about books, not television. But the thing is, when television is done well, I love it, and television has done mystery, crime, suspense, and spy thrillers well, especially well in the last ten years.…

Book Review: "The Good, The Bad and The Murderous: A Sid Chance Mystery" by Chester Campbell

The Good, The Bad and The Murderous: A Sid Chance Thriller is the second book in the series that began with The Surest Poison. As such, while this novel could be read as a stand-alone, there are the occasional references to the earlier book in the series. It is recommended that you read that book prior to this one.

Writing A Crime Novel Without Getting Busted

By Mark Young

More Praise for The Ice Woman

Fellow authors keep making me blush! Miranda Phillips Walker - author of the amazing Megan McKenna FBI Mysteries – sent this: “Austin Camacho masterfully choreographs a tale of suspense and international intrigue in The Ice Woman Assignment.

Haggard Hawk - a new Reebus?

Helloooo fellow crime fans!

Just thought I'd post a quick word about a novel I've just read called 'Haggard Hawk' by Marcus Barr.  Being a MASSIVE fan of Midsomer Murders, I went to have a look around the sets and villages where they shot a lot of the episodes.  I was in heaven!  Walking around the countryside where Barnaby and his various sidekicks brought down 'murderers most foul'... And what's so incredible, is that I survived to tell the tale!  Anyway, I…

Book Review: "Cover Of Snow" by Jenny Milchman

Everything changed for Nora Hamilton that January morning when she woke up alone. Brendan, her police officer husband, was not in the bed with her. The normal morning sounds he would have made were not present. No sounds of the shower, no smell of morning coffee, no nothing as the strange silence stretched on and on. She will soon discover the silence exists for a good reason-- the man who made love to her the night before has committed suicide.


Devastated and distraught,…

Praise from fellow authors

I think I mentioned how much I love getting praise from other writers I respect. So you won’t be surprised that I was blown away by this comment from Robert W. Walker, author of Titanic 2012, Bismarck 2013, and The Edge of Instinct:

“Take Ed McBain, Mickey Spillane, and a dash of Lawrence Block and what do you get? Austin Camacho! And Camacho means non-stop action, inside knowledge of military procedures and the world of the FBI & DEA. Camacho knows how to keep us turning pages…
