Fat Chance, by Charlie Sheldon

Fat Chance, by Charlie Sheldon

Since this book’s initial publication, in 1991, the author has found religion, and when I showed him the cover of our edition, his secretary – a member of his church – said “Oooooh, you’re going to have to pray a LOT.” And she didn’t even know that this fast and fabulous suburban farce – with more than a touch of Donald Westlake – features the exploits of that notorious force for justice, the One-Night Stand Gang.

The Game of Thirty, by William Kotzwinkle

The Game of Thirty, by William Kotzwinkle

Arguably one of the “straightest” books this cult author has ever written, but not less hypnotic and engaging for that. On the surface, it’s a yarn about a private eye hired by a wealthy femme fatale to find out who killed her father. Is Raymond Chandler whispering in your ear? Wait till you tell Raymond that at the heart of the story is an ancient Egyptian game that may predict the future.

The Bad News Bible, by Anna Blundy

The Bad News Bible, by Anna Blundy

Faith Zanetti is like a one-woman Tarantino film – gorgeous, funny, smart, and deeply, deeply messed up. A foreign correspondent for a London paper, she specializes in taking her train-wreck psyche wherever the sniper-fire is fiercest – and at the moment that’s Jerusalem. One of the most extraordinary things about this extraordinarily well written book is the extent to which Blundy avoids taking geopolitical sides. So far as Faith is concerned, everybody’s guilty.

Season of the Monsoon, by Paul Mann

Season of the Monsoon, by Paul Mann

Not into Israel? Maybe India will appeal. The first in a rich yet edgy series about an Anglo-Indian cop with identity-issues, Monsoon concerns a serial killer who is haunting Bollywood. But while the story may be un-put-down-able, the book’s real appeal lies in the window it opens on India, showcasing everything from the glittering salons of the intellectual class to Bombay’s fetid slums. It’s hard-boiled with a dollop of chutney.

Who Guards a Prince, by Reginald Hill

Who Guards a Prince, by Reginald Hill

I don’t know that I can communicate how much I like this book about an angry, unhappy cop, the crown prince of England, unlikely possibilities for romance, and a rogue Masonic lodge. Plenty of chases and gunplay, for the action-set, but infinitely richer – in terms of character, dialogue, wit – than you might expect. No surprise, since it’s from one of the great masters of the genre.
