Son of 'What Drives You Nuts?'

Dave Knadler at Dave's Fiction Warehouse discusses A Small Death in Lisbon by Robert Wilson in a post titled "The worst book I've read this year ..."

"While I admire the author's ambition and research," he writes, " this is one of those yarns where meticulous geographic detail actually undermines the story." Dave's examples will interest readers of international crime fiction. His complaint echoes one of Clive James' broader gripes about international crime fiction, a comment with which I disagreed strongly here.

(If Dave's complaints about Wilson's book get you in a mood to vent your spleen about other crime-fiction subjects, the floor is still open here.)
