My burst Jerusalem bubble

My taxi pulled up at the traffic lights on the way into Jerusalem late Sunday night. A half dozen Breslav hassids were bouncing up and down in front of the traffic, waving signs and grinning with the exultation of wedding party dancers. They were singing, “Death to the Arabs.”

Welcome home, I thought.…

Part #2 of Alex Steele and the Death Dealer has been uploaded

Excerpt from the Death Dealer

by Lawrence Johnson Sr.





Two hours later Steele found himself driving through the roughest

neighborhood in the city. No one in their right mind would come down

here alone in the daytime and most cops wouldn't risk traveling through

this part of town late at night but somehow on this dark, quiet night

Alexander Steele seemed to be drawn to it. There was movement in

shadows of the blocks and blocks of…

(1st excerpt from Dealer of Death)



Two hours later Steele found himself driving through the roughest neighborhood in the city. No one in their right mind would come down here alone in the daytime and most cops wouldn't risk traveling through this part of town late at night but somehow on this dark, quiet night Alexander Steele seemed to be drawn to it. There was movement in shadows of the blocks and blocks of abandon buildings where it was commonplace to see hundreds of…

Book of A Lifetime: The King Must Die

The Independent has a regular feature in which it asks authors to write about a book which changed their lives somehow. Last week the London newspaper asked me to write the piece. Here it is:


In early 1999, King Hussein fell sick on his return from cancer treatment in the US. I was Middle East correspondent for The…

In your face Tom Jones: I'm a Welsh icon



Welsh Icons ("an Encyclopedia and Gazetteer of Wales and all Things Welsh - A Cymrupedia if you like."...uh, "Cymru" being the Welsh word for Wales.) lists me among the "iconic" writers on its site. That puts me in the company of thriller… Continue

Acknowledge no one

Here's my latest post on the International Crime Authors Reality Check blog:



Authors are posturing, self-aggrandizing assholes. At least, that’s the conclusion I’ve reached after noting the trend for excessive “Acknowledgements” growing like mold over page on page of nonfiction books. These days they’re spreading their blight all over novels, too.



Here’s how I think it breaks down.

Ellroy Queen: Megan Abbott’s Writing Life



Megan Abbott is the female James Ellroy. When I read her Edgar-award-winning “Queenpin,” I immediately was put in mind of everyone’s favorite noirmeister. Dig it. Even more I loved “The Song is You,” in which Abbott took a real-life missing persons case from 1949 and plumbed her Hollywood characters for real… Continue

Omar Yussef "the best crime fiction can achieve"

The first rock concert I ever attended was a performance by Canada's greatest rockers Rush. I've loved Canadians ever since. In the London (Ontario) Free Press recently, Joan Barfoot gave me another reason to adore them. She gives a terrific review to the second of my Palestinian crime novels A GRAVE IN GAZA (UK title The Saladin Murders). Of my… Continue

Poetry from the ‘driest’ book of the Bible: Yakov Azriel’s Writing Life



A few years ago I was at a literary conference near Tel Aviv. I found an eclectic mix of writers on the panel with me. I’m a crime writer. You wouldn’t expect me to be paired with a writer of poetry who takes his inspiration from the stories of the Bible. But as Yakov Azriel read his poetry, I sat beside him… Continue
