Need a summer read? See my ‘Mystery Scene’ reviews
The summer issue of Mystery Scene, now on newsstands, includes my book reviews of the stand-out thriller Her Daughter’s Mother (which I tab “a doozy of a debut”) and the historical Assassin of Shadows, about the 1901 shooting of President William McKinley at the Pan-American Expo.
The online edition adds my take on the The Summer of Ellen, a brooding psychological study by Denmark’s Agatha Friis.
You’ll find lots of other reviews (and reviewers) in the magazine, which has been exploring the mystery-crime genre since the mid-Eighties.
