To be honest, Declan Burke is having a good year. I'm having a good month because of him. Read my interview with the author of Slaughter's Houndhere:
There's also a review of his new editorial collaboration with John Connolly (Books To Die For), as well as another interview with Dec at the New Mystery Reader web site. As usual, Dec is as worthy an interview as anyone I know. His answers will add to the enjoyment of those who have read the books in question, and convince those who have not read them, they ought to.
