Crimewave: The Devil's Making, The Buffalo Job, No Safe House

When The Devil’s Making by Seán Haldane (Stone Flower Press, 368 pp; $19.95) was nominated for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Novel earlier this year, I knew nothing about the book, which was published in the spring of 2013. 762 more words

Book Review

Home, Where My Thought's Escaping*

Plenty of crime-fictional characters travel in the course of their work. Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, for instance, doesn’t really have a settled place to live. And although Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot likes his home at Whitehaven Mansions, he also travels quite a bit. 976 more words

Book Review: Never Look Away by Linwood Barclay

This is a perfectly formed crime novel. It’s dramatic, full of twists and turns. There are red herrings left, right and centre. And yet, it feels familiar and predictable. 52 more words
