Hello Nancy,

Since I too seldom visit Crime Space I haven't seen your mail earlier. Nice though to hear from you. I am also a member of Police Pulse. So there is another thing we have in common. May I invite you to be my friend?

Regards from Carl

Good morning, Nancy.  I don't office visit Crimespace, but I was doodling around this morning and I noticed that you included Raymond Chandler as a favorite writer.  He's one of mine, as well.  I used to really enjoy the late Robert B. Parker's Spenser mysteries... but I think fame and fortune tamed Parker and his last couple books lacked the punch of HUGGER MUGGER, THIN AIR, A CATSKILL EAGLE, et al.  Another author that I noticed was significantly absent from your list was Dashiell Hammett.  Have you read THE THIN MAN, THE MALTESE FALCON, or RED HARVEST?  I love those old books.

Oops gotta run.  Thanks again for inviting me to Planet Earth Advocates.  I notice that you have a passion for protecting wildlife.  God bless you.  Did you know that Buddhists operate a shelter for animals near Kanab, Utah?  It's really something.  These people are so loving and caring that, when their rabbit sanctuary became overrun with mice... so they made a new place for the rabbits and now have a spot for mice.

Om mani padme hum!

Nancy,

 

Thanks for calling me on into your police lineup. I can only testify to never a dull moment.

Check out We Can't Dance Together at A Twist of Noir!
(based on that Steely Dan song that's been stuck in your head since 1980)

Nancy,

Try something that takes you out of the US for a bit: Alan Furst, Philip Kerr's early books, and if you really want to risk it, try Michael Genelin (that's me). And, yes, I'm also a member of Police Pulse (an ex-DA).

Best,

Michael Genelin

Thanks for the friendship Nancy. I love Dennis Lehane and Elmore Leonard, too, even if I didn't mention them in my profile. Carl Hiassen is great fun. Good picks.

Authors; you forgot Andrew Vachss, and Richard Stark. And how about Jim Thompson. You want hard ass, Mickey Spillane. Shepard Rifkin (Honorable Mention)
and Ken Bruen in a pinch. Still I like to read Damon Runyon for fun.

Hi! Thanks for 'friending me! With the exception of Elmore Leonard - I don't think I've read any of the other authors you mention! Just goes to show, there are plenty more out there to try! ;-)

Yah, sure. Being your friend can not be a bad thing. However the crime writing I'm doing is far from the Police Pulse type of story. Another however, I do like reading that genre ... and I do agree with John Sullivan below ... Crais was high on my list of authors to watch for, as was John Connelly, until, that is, they got too far away from their roots. Is that going Hollywood? Whatever.
Thanks for inviting me, though.
Bill

Thanks for the invitation Nancy. Interesting s comments to your author list.

Intriguing weblink, Police Pulse - and as stated, ideas source. May the road rise to meet you this year in your writing projects, (Jenna)
