George Kelley

I'm a big fan of Margaret Millar. I just finished reading BEAST IN VIEW. Millar is a very underrate writer! Nice review!

BV Lawson

You have always had excellent taste, George! And they were such a powerful writing duo that I remain in awe of both of them.

Patti Abbott

I have read nearly all of them and always enjoy her insightful view. I think you are right. Hard to be successful--then and now--without a series.

BV Lawson

I think a series is a little more likely to win an author devoted, long-term fans, but not always. Standalones are more likely to be made into movies, however (unless it's a British police procedural series!). Dennis Lehane wrote in a series, but it's his standalone thrillers that won most of the awards and were made into movies. I suppose it's a trade-off.

Brian Busby

My favourite novel by my favourite mystery writer. I understand Soho Syndicate is set to begin reissuing all her novels. Here's hoping this includes the nearly unobtainable early works.

BV Lawson

Glad I chose this one, then, Brian! And yes, I would thrilled to see all her novels reissued ASAP. In this day and age of digital books and POD when nothing ever has to be out of print, it's a crime to have such authors with works that we can't access.
