Crime doesn’t always have to be bloody and gory, as new books by Elizabeth Coleman, Kerryn Mayne, and Ilsa Evans prove.
Crime can make us laugh as well as gasp. It can sweep up illicit affairs, secret diaries, family mysteries, sibling rivalry, visions of danger, embezzlement, and catfishing in its felonious embrace – not to mention an acutely intelligent miniature schnauzer, Miss Marple. Also hear Anne M. Carson read from her new book, The Detective’s Chair:Prose Poems about Fictional Detectives (Liquid Amber).
