Just a few reasons I love St Louis and St. Louis County Library, which recently hosted Reed Farrel Coleman, Duane Swierczynski, Frank Bill, and me at their annual Suspense Night:

L-R, Linda Groppe Eissenberg, Greg Edmondson (okay, we were in grade school together too), Joel Eissenberg (with whom I took my first-ever bike trip, back when no one to...

Apparently I'm discussing something very important with William Kent Krueger (and he seems to be listening with great forbearance) - this was at Mystery on Main Street in Brattleboro, Vermont, this past Saturday - part of the wonderful Great Mystery Bus Tour, with four Atria authors on an eight-day, twelve-bookstore tour by bus.

And am also delighted to see my friend Reed Coleman's Hurt Machine on the best novel list, and Roger Ellory's Bad Signs on the best Britis...
