Bob Levinson; Mystery Scene #104

From our friend Bob Levinson:

I'm delighted to advise (a bit belatedly) that IN THE KEY OF DEATH made the Los Angeles Times Bestseller List on Sunday, April 27...

In the Key of Death by Robert S. Levinson (Five Star: $25.95) A private eye whose superstar singer wife was gunned down has a score to settle.


Mystery Scene #104 arrived yesterday and as always it's loaded with goodies.The lead interview goes to Nevada Barr followed by a wise and moving tribute to Ed Hoch. Reviews, columns covering everything from books to CDs to DVDs. I didn't know much about Irish writer John Banville but thanks to an especially good article on him by Martin Edwards I'll be picking up a few of his books. A long article on the small press, with me doing short profiles of Stark House and Ramble House. And Kevin Burton Smith cleverly asks Who Would Marlowe Vote For? Really nifty idea well executedThere's even an interview with somebody named Ed Gorman.

My favorite piece is Jon Breen's piece on detectives who've moved from books to the screen (large and small). Witty, loaded with lore and as good an overview on the subject as any I've ever read. This is a keeper.

Kate and Brian continue to provide superior entertainment and enlightment for mystery fans of all kinds.
