The May 1 Booklist Mystery Showcase just went live on Booklist Online. As always, there’s a lot you can read for free, even if you aren’t a subscriber. And non-subscribers who want to see it all can always try a free trial.
The subject of our mystery-loving editor Bill Ott’s Hard-Boiled Gazetteer is Latin America, and you won’t want to miss his picks for the Year’s Best Crime Novels. But Bill believes in equal opportunity, too, which is how mystery-loathing Will Manley finds room to vent in our showcase. At least he’s funny about it.
And read my new review of a book I’m very high on, Harry Dolan’s Bad Things Happen. Leafy Ann Arbor a hotbed of crime? Now you know.
