The Lineup: Weekly Links

Contrasted ConfinementNick Santora’s new novel FIFTEEN DIGITS was recently reviewed in The Hollywood Reporter, which proclaimed the novel “a propulsive thriller that hurtles along to a brutal and–trust me–very unexpected conclusion.” Nick’s novel was also reviewed in the Washington Post, with reviewer Steve Donoghue writing: Santora expertly ratchets up the tension….Readers will be mighty entertained.” LA Weekly also has a great interview with Nick, and touts the novel as “a mix of Dennis Lehane and Scott Turow.”

In other news, Lawrence Block’s much-acclaimed return to Matthew Scudder A DROP OF THE HARD STUFF was just awarded a Spinetingler Award for Best Novel in the Legend category. Congrats Larry!
