Crime in the City

by Jesse M

Little Green coverFor this post I’m going to highlight NPR’s annual series Crime in the City, a summertime series about fictional detectives and the cities where they live. Since its inception in August of 2007 the series has examined a total of 49 authors, their fictional characters, and the cities those characters inhabit. So far this summer six authors have been profiled, three of which have titles available in the DCPL catalog: Walter Mosley (Los Angeles), Robert Rotenberg (Toronto), and Chris Grabenstein (the Jersey shore).
