A few days back I mentioned that its been awhile between crime novels. A good run will do that, but in addition to a new Mo Hayder, there's a new George Pelecanos coming(!) and I'm well into Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. It weighs in at over 400 pages, but the back end of Stalin's Russia pretty much demands a big canvas.
Ridley Scott has scored the rights, and film or not the book is going to be a big deal.
Pretty damn fine so far
