The 'News' page on the Euro Crime website has been updated with links to interviews and reviews from the last week.
Lynda la Plante's The Red Dahlia is reviewed twice - with slightly differing opinions:
from the Guardian:
"No one does a police procedural as well as La Plante, who orchestrates the suspense and the frenzy of the chase against the clock with as much panache as she elaborates the disarray of the investigators' private lives. It's breathless stuff which ranks impressively against the best of Prime Suspect. Because of her TV fame, La Plante is seriously underrated as a novelist; this should help to change that."
whereas the Telegraph says:
"If you can ignore the predictability in all this, the leaden dialogue, the writing-by-numbers prose, the flat-pack plotting, the implausible character motivation, the absence of verisimilitude, and the utter banality of it all, then this novel, the latest from the writer who brought us Prime Suspect, is just about all right."
Anyone read anything by her? I've not even seen Prime Suspect.
