Top Suspense, Outsourced, Caretaker & 21 Tales
We now have a Top Suspense Group blog at topsuspense.blogspot.com. The way the group is going to use the blog will evolve over time. Over the next week we'll be posting short interviews with each author, and after that we're going to experiment with writing a crime story in a round robin fashion with no planning, no coordination & no safety nets! And maybe prizes!
Outsourced won't be out in the US until Feb 1st. So far it's been reviewed nicely in the UK in the London Times, Financial Times & Morning Star, and in Australia's largest paper, The Australian, and it just received it's first US review on the website x2theL:
Outsourced is not only a good read, but also a sobering one that makes you wonder about the nature of the human being: if driven to the edge, would an average law-abiding citizen commit a crime in order to survive? And once having done that, can that same person face the consequences with a clear head? The answers are not easy, and Zeltserman repeatedly turns to the reader, who in the end has to answer them on his own.
You can read the whole review here.
The trend continues with librarians digging and reviewing The Caretaker of Lorne Field. Here's a new review. I think it's great that a group of folks who love books seem to really be digging Caretaker.
Jedidiah Ayres, a guy who really knows and loves his dark crime fiction, is talking up 21 Tales here. Thanks Jed!
