The Wall Street Journal
profiles Detectives Beyond Borders favorite Adrian McKinty on the occasion of the U.S. release of I Hear the Sirens in the Street
, a novel as good at its title.
The article also invokes McKinty's "Dead" trilogy: Dead I Well May Be
, The Dead Yard
, and The Bloomsday Dead
, the books that got me reading McKinty.
Not many newspapers devote space to crime fiction these days, so props to the folks at the Wall Street Journal. Something is happening, and you know what it is, Mr. Dow-Jones.
cKinty's novel The Cold Cold Ground
recently won a 2013 Spinetingler Award
for best novel. That's a worthy feat; those Spinetingler folks and the people who follow them are some of the sharper and more discerning minds in the crime community. And hey, we Spinetingler winners have to stick together
