Here are 9 new reviews which have been added to the „Euro Crime“ website today: Judith Cutler’s „Burying the Past“, „Roman Games“ by Bruce Macbain, Ian Rankin: „Standing in Another Man’s Grave“, Ferdinand von Schirach: „The Collini Case“ and much more.
The best recent crime and thrillers: August 19. A lost novel by James M Cain, the latest from Rizzoli and Isles, plus Louise Welsh’s „The Girl on the Stairs“ and Don Winslow’s „The Kings of Cool“.
Louise Welsh is a rare bird: a thriller writer who takes years over a novel. It may be this patient process that produces the intensity and stylistic originality evident in „The Girl on the Stairs“.
Simon Mawer and Michèle Roberts discuss their books set in occupied France, Louise Welsh moves from Glasgow to Berlin and Maajid Nawaz tells of how he moved from Muslim militancy to starting a movement for democratic Islam.
