Fiction, Crime & mystery

'My favourite American crime-writer' New York Herald Tribune

The Glendale P.D. have their hands full again. What with an epidemic of motel hold-ups, a rapist with a fixation on hospital nurses, a teenager's suicide, an art gallery theft and a killing that leads to a zoo, there is no time for respite for Vic Varallo and co.

Delia Riordan is troubled by a very unusual mystery indeed, that of an old lady who dies suddenly of a most unexpected heart attack. Or does she? Riordan makes this her own special case, pursuing it beyond the call of duty and coming up with a most surprising answer.

Dell Shannon

In her 67 years, California author Elizabeth Linington wrote 82 crime fiction novels, under her own name as well as the aliases Anne Blaisdell, Lesley Egan, Egan O'Neill and Dell Shannon. Her writing evolved from the early radio and stage dramas, via historical narratives, to her most celebrated novels - mysteries. She was nominated for Edgars in 1961, 1962 and 1963 for Case Pending, Nightmare and Knave of Hearts respectively. Her most successful creation, debonair LAPD Lieutenant Luis Mendoza, broke new ground in being one of the first Latino police officers in the procedural genre, and Linington herself was a pioneer in a male-dominated industry, earning the moniker 'Queen of the Procedurals'.
