And that might be Lisa Garner( The Killing Hour) and along with Toni Morrison (Beloved). I could be wrong, just my thoughts. However, there are plenty of others who will totally disagree with me. And I understand that. I admit I have not read everything by these authors and it may be unfair. Let me say, that I have wasted lots of money purchasing books that I thought would bring something new to crime writing. Orginality just was not there. At least not for me. Everything I write is original.
