A personal diary keeping people abreast of what I am working on writing-wise.

Well, at least this one isn't just me talking.

Alison Hallett at The Portland Mercury interviewed Joëlle Jones and I about the book, and she managed to turn our ramblings into a cool little piece for their book review section.

"...You Have Killed Me is a clear statement of Jones' talent and versatility. Meticulously detailed shading, assertive contrasts, and period-perfect costuming create a brooding, atmospheric realization of Rich's script. The book's world is shadowy and cinematic, as a hapless detective follows the trail of a vanished woman into an underworld of gambling and organized crime. It's a classic whodunit that drives home a point not too far removed from the achey-heartbreak of some of Rich's previous work: It's a foolish man that puts too much faith in a beautiful woman."

Read the whole thing here.

Locals can also read this in the actual print edition.
