3 Picks from Chris
~Post by Chris M.
1. Filthy Rich by Brian Azzarell
This little graphic mystery comes courtesy of Vertigo comics’ Vertigo Crime imprint and is filled to the brim with pulpy fun and hardboiled thrills. In Filthy Rich Azzarello harnesses his inner Spillane-expect plenty of sex, greed, and violence.
2. The Bar on the Seine by Georges Simenon
Simenon is undoubtedly one of the greatest mystery writers of all time and The Bar on the Seine is a fantastic starting point for the uninitiated. Read Simenon, and thank me later.
3. The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo
With a new Harry Hole mystery due out in October, now is the perfect time to either revisit or jump on board Mr. Nesbo’s wild ride. The Redbreast is a perfectly paced thriller that will have Steig Larsson fans wondering why they wasted all that time on some girl with a lame tattoo.
