Bio: Jaida Temperly is an Agent at New Leaf Literary & Media, and is actively expanding her Adult list. I don’t tend to read many mystery, thriller or suspense books and one of the things that turned me off buying them was the fact that Scandinavian titles, typically more gritty and violent than I like, dominated the old crime section. Some years ago I had suddenly broken out in a rash of blotches in my gym. As of this writing I own a single series of TV programs – the full eight “Monk” series – in digital format on iTunes, and I own a single DVD of a somewhat obscure Woody Allen film titled “Deconstructing Harry” and I own it for the reason that, however obscure, it resonates with me so intensely.

While reading this book you may think you know how it ends, but you will be wrong, because the Way that Thorndyke wraps things up will come to you as an unexpected surprise.

The detective story is easily identifiable, because despite the ingenuity of writers who prevent the reader from guessing "Whodunit", it has only one plot, basically: the solution of a mystery, usually murder. I've always figured you are either dead or wounded. Everyone thought the croft was empty, but in the wreckage, Perez finds the body of a dark-haired woman in a red silk dress. Developing an understanding of criminology, forensic psychology and psychiatry can be useful for creating plots, red herrings and the development of characters- criminals as well as forensic mental health experts and criminologists.

After you’ve read Barry Lancet and Anthony Franze’s piece about some of the masters of opening lines, comment below with your own favorite opening from a thriller, mystery, or crime fiction novel and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a copy of Barry’s new novel, PACIFIC BURN, from his acclaimed Jim Brodie series, and Anthony’s upcoming heart-stopper, THE ADVOCATE’S DAUGHTER.

Before interning at LDA, she practiced entertainment law and taught high school English and debate. This is a deeply melancholy novel, but Mankell, sweeping gracefully between reflections on international politics and meditations on the inevitable arc of human life, never lets his story become engulfed by darkness.
