The Big O is now a big e-book

A while back I glommed onto an Irish crime novel called The Big O.
"The deliciously complicated plotting," I wrote, "the wry dialogue and the sympathy Burke engenders for his cast of characters made this one of the most fun and purely pleasurable reads I've had in a while."
Reviewers invoked names such as Westlake, Leonard, and Hiaasen, which lets you know you'll crack a smile reading it. And now you can read it on your mobile reading device for $4.99, as well you should. Find out why Detectives Beyond Borders called The Big O a "tour de fun."

I sent Alan Glynn a verbal high five a year and half ago for exposing narrative's use as a contemporary weasel word in his novel Bloodland. His new Graveland, out this spring, does something similar with going forward, as well it should.

Its a wonderful read and if it gets more people reading the Edgar Award Nominated author Declan Burke its a very good thing indeed.

Good gravy, how could I neglected to mention, once again, Declan and John Connolly's nomination for Books to Die For? I'll be at the dinner and ready to make an acceptance speech for a reasonable rate.

Oh, and Alan Glynn's Bloodland is nominated for best paperback original.
