  • Great (Hit) Men I Have Known

    Duane Swierczynski’s Charlie Hardie knows a thing or two about murder. Introduced in Fun & Games (June 2011), the first title in a new trilogy, Hardie is an ex-cop still haunted by the death of his partner, who finds himself protecting a low-level actress from a swath of trained killers.

  • What’s In a Name? A Conversation with Publisher Michael Pietsch

    The name Mulholland Books is derived from the road in California, Mulholland Drive, that conjures both strong geographical imagery as well classic settings and associations of crime stories. Or, as publisher Michael Pietsch put it, more succinctly, it’s a name that “signifies anticipation.”

  • Mulholland, Dot Com Style

    As readers have come to expect much more from publishers’ websites than a simple presentation of authors and books, publishers--and, increasingly, imprints within publishing houses--have begun creating sites that go beyond what is essentially an online catalog. Imprint sites are becoming community hubs, drawing readers in with original content and features that play up the social network aspects of today’s web.

  • Marcia Clark and Sebastian Rotella Talk Past Lives

    Former Los Angeles deputy district attorney Marcia Clark, who was the lead prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder case, and reporter Sebastian Rotella, a former Mexico border correspondent and bureau chief in Paris and Buenos Aires for the Los Angeles Times, both took the “write what you know” adage to heart when they sat down to write their first novels. Clark’s novel, Guilt By Association, out in April, concerns Los Angeles D.A. Rachel Knight, who takes on the case of a young woman who was assaulted from a prominent family. Rotella’s novel, Triple Crossing, an August publication, is a thriller about the criminal underworld at work along both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, and a young cop who goes undercover to bring it down. Here, the two writers talk about how their day jobs have influenced their writing, in both obvious and subtle ways.

  • Block on Scudder: The Grandmaster Discusses His Most Popular Hero

    In a writing career that has spanned well over 30 years, 50 novels and numerous awards – including the Mystery Writers of America's prestigious Grand Master nod – one of the main constants in Lawrence Block’s life has been Matthew Scudder. Scudder, who first appeared in 1976’s Sins of the Father, is one of Block’s, and the crime genre's, most enduring creations. A former New York City cop who's faced a lifelong battle with alcoholism, Scudder has appeared in 16 novels and, this May, will appear for a 17th time, in A Drop of the Hard Stuff. For the occasion, Block talked with us about why Scudder is still around, on the page and in his mind, after all these years.

  • What Color Are Thorne's Eyes Again? Or... The Perils of Writing A Series.

    Mark Billingham’s Bloodline (July 2011) marks the eighth outing for his London detective Tom Thorne. Billingham, who has discussed the fact that Thorne is more than a mere doppelganger for himself--author and detective both live in London, have the same birthday, and more than a few favorite bands--has a love/hate relationship writing about this gumshoe. He talked to us about the joys, and pitfalls, of writing a series character.

  • Michael Robotham’s Top Robberies of All Time

    Michael Robotham’s The Wreckage (June 2011) ties in a bombing in Baghdad, a robbery in London and the kidnapping of an international businessman to a massive bank heist. Noting that a great robbery has the ability to turn “an ordinary criminal into a folk hero,” Robotham mined some of the greatest--and costliest--robberies in history to create a definitive list of the most spectacular robberies ever.

  • Daniel Woodrell Gets the Hollywood Treatment

    Daniel Woodrell has dealt with Hollywood before -- his novel Ride with the Devil was made into a 1999 film by Ang Lee -- but his experience with Winter's Bone is unique. After being adapted into a small art house feature by indie filmmaker Debra Granik, the little feature became a breakout hit at Sundance. Now it’s the art house breakout film of 2010, with a number of Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture. We talked to Woodrell, whose The Bayou Trilogy is coming out in April, about suddenly being in the eye of the Oscar race, living where he writes, and the overlap between rural Missouri and the fictional St. Bruno.
