This blog will be devoted to interviews with authors of mysteries and thrillers who have a particular connection with a city or locale. Think Simenon and Paris, Conan Doyle and London. Now think extant writers: Cara Black and Paris, Philip Kerr and pre-war Berlin, Matt Beynon Rees and Jerusalem, Donna Leon and Venice, Jason Goodwin and early nineteenth-century Istanbul, and yes, yours truly for Vienna 1900.
Do not expect a daily blog. I am a working writer with novels to write. But I hope to have regular interviews with other working writers, talking about spirit of place and how locale can become a major character in our favorite mysteries. Please feel free to make suggestions of books and authors.
