I haven't read this one yet but I gather the collision part is only partly a euphemism - it seems the plot revolves around a car accident and the lives of those who collide; ruthlessly, passionately or otherwise.
Speaking of one of our favorite authors 'round these parts, John D. MacDonald (which we were in our previous entry) when shelving said entry I decided to see how many other similarly minded / samely penned non-Travis McGee related novels were on our shelf of dusty thrifted / flea marketed paperbacks. As you can see from the impromptu photo shoot above, there were quite a few that never made it to the blog. So...
Kicking off this series of non-series novels is Area Of Suspicion.
Previously published by Collier's in an abridged / serialized version as My Brother's Widow and, in this edition at least, featuring a foxy red headed, maxi dress-ed chanteuse on the cover(s) courtesy fellow perennial PFP fave Robert McGinnis.
(Actually 8 of the 9 books seen in the pic above feature covers by McGinnis so more on this pairing next week.)
To revisit a theme from a couple posts back, tonight's entry is the fourth and final book in our series of recent four-for-a-dollar flea market finds, The Flagellator by Carter Brown.
Unlike the previous books penned by Brown to appear on the blog, not a novel featuring the adventures of New York City based detective Danny Boyd mystery, nor a novel featuring the adventures of Los Angeles based detective Al Wheeler, but a novel featuring the adventures of Hollywood based detective Rick Holman. Totally different!
