It's a very busy week here — trying to cram five days of work into two, as I leave with the whole firm to Miami on Wednesday for the ABA's White Collar Crime convention in Miami, a liver-destroying boondoggle that is fun but time-consuming and logistically tricky. So blogging will be even more sporadic than normal.
In the meantime, via someplace-I-remember-not-where, check out the Telegraph's list of 50 crime authors to read before you die. The list has an English sensibility, naturally, and a historical interest — many of the authors listed are 19th and early-20th century and not to everyone's taste. I noted a few new authors I'd like to try from the list, which made it definitely worth my while. Also, it gave me the frisson of outrage that they had omitted some of my favorites, which is also a good reason to read such things. How could you leave off Michael Connelly? And Dennis Lehane and Elizabeth George ought to be on there. Anyway, enjoy.
