OTHER AUTHORS REVIEWED

Every month on the blog of my personal site at www.jasonhalf.com ,  I provide reviews for other classic and contemporary mystery writers. I hope to review the complete works of some authors, while many others will probably be sampled singly until the next book comes along.

 

Below is a list of the authors whose books I have read and reviewed. Links to the review pages are provided below. If a title is not in bold and linked, I plan to read the book at some point and provide a review.
