CAUGHT! - The last hurrah!

Well, it isn't the total last hurrah, later today you'll have to check back to see the Crime Writers Caught Reading Crime video grand finale. For now, though, the photo finale will be an explosive finale, kinda like the end of a fireworks show. Let it roll:

At the beginning of this month, you may remember I went to see Sophie Littlefield, Brad Parks and Carla Buckley. And you may also remember that I told you they read from each other's work. Here they are, three debut authors, in all their glory:

Sophie read from Carla's THE THINGS THAT KEEP US HERE:

Brad read from Sophie's A BAD DAY FOR SORRY. He said he always hears Stella's voice with a Southern dialect, and so that's how he read it:

And Carla read from Brad's FACES OF THE GONE:

I can't imagine a better way to end this month of Crime Writers Caught Reading Crime than with a debut author reading one of the genre's legends! Here we have Ken Mercer, author of SLOW FIRE, reading James Crumley's THE LAST GOOD KISS.

Many thanks to all the folks who helped make this possible by helping me catch crime writers reading crime! We may have a go at this one again since people enjoyed the photos. So, everyone be on the lookout for your favorite crime writers reading crime!

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, later today I'll have the video finale with some extra special guests chiming in! And don't forget to leave your final comments for the drawing for Michael Koryta's SO COLD THE RIVER. All the summer reading recommendation lists are coming out. Let us know what you are looking forward to reading this summer. And are you planning to read anywhere fun? Share with us!

Happy Reading!

Thanks for yet another great, entertaining, and "can't wait to see it today" run of inspiration!

Thanks for finding a picture of Carla where she's not cringing at having to read such awful tripe. ;)
