That's how you showed up in my inbox!
A lot of straight forward classic stuff: Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Ed McBain, and Elmore Leonard. And probably my current favorite, Ace Atkins.
How would you describe your novel?
Originally posted by @paul-a-robertsYou two are obviously Americans. My booklist which is crime/mystery or crime/procedural rather than crime/thriller or crime/horror, includes only two of your authors, plus about 10 of equal importance from several other countries.

It looks at the mistreatment of animals and nature as a whole (Trump wouldn't like it!), and tries to be a new age sci-fi story to boot.
On police/crime stories, I'm a fan of Michael Connolly ...[text shortened]... inment...
I'm working on a police concept of my own, as always with a bit a sci-fi in it too.

Ok, I also like Peter Temple. Happy?
Originally posted by @montymooseI have all 4 - and I'm not usually a book collector. I've looked at the new one and read an excerpt, and I won't be buying it. She's not the girl I know, she's a Lagercrantz creation.
'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' is huge here in the Americas. I work at Amazon part time. 'The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye' is starting to show up on order a hundred times a shift.
And yes, I know who Inspector Banks is.
Originally posted by @kewpieHi, I'm British by the way. I find Banks too mundane, too British I guess, each story is as the previous. A charge that could be set to Lee Child too.
