Sarah points to a marvelous NYT column detailing some top of the mark new crime stuff out there. I haven't' read one or two of them, but Mo Hayder, Jean Cluade Izzo, Carlotto, David Goodis. Oh baby.
I like reviewer deluxe Marilyn Stasio makes the point that around one of my faves that
"A Mo Hayder novel makes a nice palate cleanser when you’ve binged on too many mellifluent literary mysteries and don’t feel like shooting it out with yet another wise-racking private eye."
Actually, a Mo Hayder thriller will make you forget much of your previous months reading.
Proof positive, baby.
