Laura Lippman's riveting new thriller is a must-read. Stephen King declared LADY IN THE LAKE “extraordinary” in the The New York Times Books Review and Vanity Fair calls it “compulsively readable.” Don’t miss LADY IN THE LAKE.

When Crime Comes for the Crime Writer

Wonderful essay by @LauraMLippman in @vulture: When Crime Comes for the Crime Writer https://t.co/xB23qsBIHO

There was a problem with my personal ethics policy: It was steeped in the hubris of a crime writer who had little firsthand experience with crime.

Beautiful remembrance of Jonathan Gold by @edlevine: https://t.co/UYybjY1HEf

The late Jonathan Gold wasn't just a superb food writer; he was a writer whose mission was to break down the psychological walls that people erected between themselves and their neighbors.
