Before you start reading Trial Junkies by Robert Gregory Browne, I want to offer you some advice.

Let the dog out. Put the kids to bed. Give your spouse-ish a snack and the remote. Turn off your phone. Shut down the laptop. Do not answer the door.

Ignore everything in your life that needs to be done.

Once you read the first line of Chapter One, you will forget everything else anyway. You might as well prepare for it.

When Robert B. Parker passed away, I lost my favorite crime writer.

I have been in abject mourning.

Ring those bells, I have thrown off the black!

As a fiction editor and more importantly, an avid mystery/crime/thriller/suspense reader, I have read it all.

I have slogged my way through drek.

Alternately, I have tiptoed stealthily through the dark recesses and alleyways and deserted buildings of the best prose on the planet.

And I can say wholeheartedly--and gleefully--that Robert Gregory Browne's latest, Trial Junkies, is the best of the best.

You will not see it coming. I didn't. And I have solved every single crime in every single book I've ever read.

Browne literally has no "tell."

This book is brilliant.

Robert, you are my hero.
