Now you're getting the picture baby

Congrats to Sean Doolittle (for THE CLEANUP nabbing #1!), Duane Swierczynski (also Murder by the Book's Hot new urban writer featured in March) and Victor Gischler for landing in Crimespree Magazine's top 5 Favorite Books of 2006.

Spinetingler Magazine's Best Reads of 2006 include THE WHEELMAN and SHOTGUN OPERA.

CHUD's (Cinematic Happenings Under Development) must-reads of 2006 rounds it out with SORROW'S ANTHEM by Michael Koryta and THE BLONDE by Swierczynski.

In review news, Robert Wade of the San Diego Union Tribune has great things to say about PROBABLE CAUSE. “[Theresa] Schwegel spins a taut and muscular tale that explores the dark side of law enforcement. The cast is convincing, the suspense is unrelenting, the result is top-flight entertainment.”

David J. Montgomery, in the Chicago Sun-Times, calls Doolittle "today's finest writer of Midwestern noir...His understated novels are real gems, fine examples of timeless crime writing that hold up the rich traditions of the genre while also breaking new ground."
