Product description

Review

Serious mystery fans will welcome Dreams of Justice: Mysteries as Social Documents, a collection of thematically arranged reviews by Dick Adler, who
writes the Crime Watch column for the Chicago Tribune. Adler's essay on the legendary Anthony Boucher is particularly good, while he's also strong on the African-American experience. -- Publishers Weekly 1.2.2006

Dreams of Justice: Mysteries as Social Documents by Dick Adler

pbk out December 05 (Poisoned Pen Press) at £8.59

Dick Adler is a highly regarded crime fiction reviewer for 'The Chicago Tribune' and this book gathers together an eclectic selection of his insightful critiques, with the emphasis on relatively recent books. In his introduction, Tom Nolan notes that the book can serve 'as reader's/buyer's guide' and applauds Adler for his ability to convey the special flavour of such a diverse range of titles. He compares Adler to the late and legendary reviewer Anthony Boucher - and this is not over-praise. After a couple of introductory chapters, one of which describes Boucher as 'the man who invented mystery reviewing' (in the US, perhaps, but Dorothy L. Sayers and others made an impression much earlier), Adler collects reviews in a series of themed chapters: 'black mysteries', 'history as mystery', 'Brits behaving badly' and so on. A notable feature is that, like Boucher, he is admirably keen to pick out rising stars: an example is Jim Kelly, two of whose books are acclaimed. Reviewers as perceptive as Adler are uncommon; collections of reviews such as this are even rarer. This is a book to relish, not only as a guide to unfamiliar yet excellent novels, but also for Adler's sympathetic, intelligent analyses of a very varied group of writers, from Arsenault to Zafon.

( Martin Edwards - author of the highly acclaimed Harry Devlin Mysteries)
