Elisabeth Sanxay Holding
Speak of the Devil / The Obstinate Murderer
Holding has been hailed by such wide-ranging tastes as that of Raymond Chandler, Sarah Weinman and Christopher Morley. Her novels have been filmed, her stories collected into year’s best anthologies. Stark House Press presents two more of her superlative suspense classics, the first one a story of murder at a Caribbean resort hotel, the second the story of an aging alcoholic who is called in to solve a murder that hasn’t happened yet. Includes a new introduction by Ed Gorman. Out now!
“Before the term “roman noir” had even been coined, her specialty was isolated and desperate characters with profoundly poor decision-making skills.”—Jake Hinkson, Criminalelement.com
“Holding’s name doesn’t even appear in many standard reference works … but remains a writer ripe for rediscovery.”—Sergio Angelini, Tipping My Fedora
