  • Who to Believe - Edwin Hill Interview

    23 JAN 2024 · Edwin Hill Show Notes Today we talk with Edwin Hill about his book Who To Believe. It will release today from Kensington Books. Monreith, Massachusetts, was once a small community of whalers and farmers. These days it’s a well-to-do town filled with commuters drawn to its rugged coastline and country roads. A peaceful, predictable place— until popular restaurateur Laurel Thibodeau is found brutally murdered in her own home. Suspicion naturally falls on Laurel’s husband, Simon, who had gambling debts that only her life insurance policy could fix. But there are other rumors too . . . Among the group of six friends gathered for Alice Stone’s fortieth birthday, theories abound concerning Laurel’s death. Max Barbosa, police chief, has heard plenty of them, as has his longtime friend, Unitarian minister Georgia Fitzhugh. Local psychiatrist Farley Drake is privy to even more, gleaning snippets of gossip and information from his patients while closely guarding his own past. But maybe everyone in Monreith has something to hide. Because before this late-summer evening has come to a close, one of these six will be dead. And as jealousy, revenge, adultery, and greed converge, the question becomes not who among these friends might be capable of such a thing, but—who isn’t?

  • David Simmons Interview - Ghosts of East Baltimore

    9 JAN 2024 · David Simmons Ghosts of E#ast Baltimore Show Notes On the first official episode of 2024, we talked with David Simmons about his book “Ghosts of East Baltimore.: David was delightful. Worm, fresh out of jail, tries to make a little money to get back on his feet, and make it back to the halfway house before his 9 pm curfew. But what should be a simple drop-off, spirals into a nightmare. Worm is faced with a number of obstacles like Greek gangsters, gimps, mecha suits, wild drugs, and more. This feels like the perfect cross-genre book written for me especially with the clone conspiracy theory sprinkled in. Ghosts of East Baltimore is a wild ride and the perfect mix of elegant yet literary cosmic hood horror with textured prose that not many could pull off. Rich with history, and a deep-seated love for Baltimore, this is a fantastic crime fiction debut. TRIVIA Author Gary Phillips has edited several anthologies over the years. One that won particular accolades was one that paid homage to a past president. Which one? a. Nixon b. Bush c. Washington d. Obama Phillips has edited a number of anthologies including Orange County Noir and The Obama Inheritance: Fifteen Stories of Conspiracy Noir, with the latter receiving the 2018 Anthony Award for Best Anthology. The Obama Inheritance was inspired by the many conspiracy theories generated about President Barack Obama. Each story in the anthology focused on one conspiracy theory as a means to "Riff on it, take it apart and turn it on its head, and give the reader a thrill ride of weirdo, noirish, pulpy goodness Which mystery author has a span of 29 years between the publishing of one of her mysteries? a. Mary Roberts Reinhart b. Ruth Rendell c. Mildred Davis d. Amanda Cross
