A gripping military thriller that’s bound for the best seller list.
Martin Roy Hill had me captivated from the very beginning of this modern locked room mystery and compelling naval thriller. Set aboard the USS Encinitas, the US Navy’s first attack submarine with a mixed-gender crew, The Killing Depths tells the tale of the hunt for a serial killer amidst the high pressure atmosphere of an ongoing submarine battle.
NCIS Special Agent and former Naval Academy cadet, Linus…Continue

If you’re here and reading this, you probably have a thing for noir. I know I do. I love its style – the tipped fedoras, the fitted clothes. I love that a cigarette is more than a prop – it’s treated like a piece of jewelry.
But in the few short years after the end of the WWII, when cool was being codified, Hitchcock's blondes were running amok, and French noir was…Continue
The above is for those interested in a personal blog post.
Crime fiction. Hm. Well, as mentioned before, my preference is the old fashioned good triumphs over evil style but within that limitation I do not feel that every heroic person has to be like a comic book hero or heroine. I do love those, but I also like depth of character and diversity in…Continue

When blogging, there are days when the first question is what to blog about. Today is that type of day. In real life, this is a re-playing a movie that I actually bought a copy of. My son was with me for the earlier part of the day. Right now it is dark out: it is 5:30pm local time. The Germans are like the English in that they kept the 24 clock after the world wars - weird that in the end they agreed about that...This involves a side issue about misunderstanding when using different…Continue

An early post this week as I’ll be away from my computer tomorrow.
Answer: Only my mother knows.
Actually, and forgive me if I sound sexist, most females know. It’s the same with wrapping Christmas and birthday presents so that all sides are even, no paper is torn and…Continue

Book Title: THE DUNBAR CASE
Author: Peter Corris
Series: Cliff Hardy
Year of Publication: 2013
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
This wasn't Hardy's usual brief--uncover the mysteries of a nineteenth-century shipwreck--but he could do with an easy case and the retainer was generous.
But is it ever that simple? Not with a notorious crime family tearing itself apart, and an undercover cop playing both sides against the…

Debriefing on an author's personal relationship with the genre....As many of you may know, An Adventure in Indianapolis is a crime fiction novel but it is not a conventional mystery or whodunnit story. It is not about a murder, and quite frankly, I am glad that it is not.
As an author I can tell you that writing stories and receiving them is not the same but of course they are connected. For readers who know an author, and even more so for an author it is easy to see what…Continue
