Murderous writers proliferate in the Hudson Valley. Even a casual roundup of the usual suspects includes, among others, Alison Gaylin, Carol Goodman, Steve Hamilton, Marshall Karp, C.E. Lawrence, Jenny Milchman, Maxine Paetro, Wendy Corsi Staub, Sebastian Stuart, Kim Wozencraft, and uber-prolific late grandmaster Donald E. Westlake.
Why? To solve the mystery, Nina Shengold met with Alison Gaylin, Steve Hamilton, and Marshall Karp, who all have new books out this summer. Gaylin's Stay With Me (Harper, 2014) is the third in her Shamus Award-winning Brenna Spector series. Let It Burn (Minotaur, 2014) is Hamilton's 10th entry in the much-lauded Alex McKnight series, set in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Karp is a serial writer of serials, publishing four books starring LA cops Lomax & Biggs before joining James Patterson for NYPD Red; both the series launch and NYPD Red 2 (Little, Brown, 2014) were New York Times #1 bestsellers.
