Mystery writer/blogger Margot Kinberg expounds on a gut-level, literary thriller!
Wonderful post, Margot! Right down my alley as I’m now dealing with two private eyes in two different eras: Mac McClellan in modern times; and Dinger, PI, during post-WWII. Fortunately (?), I’m old enough to remember and realize how many things worked “back in the olden times” that Dinger operates in. And, I’ve retained enough “gray matter” to at least keep up with most of the new technology available to today’s crime solvers (although Mac is a reluctant student himself with all this technology).
One of my favorite authors is Ross Macdonald, who’s “Lew Archer” novels never fail to entrance me. I revel in the “old style” PI work Lew must contend with to get to the bottom of the cases he’s been hired to solve.
Thanks again for a great post! 🙂
