Pierce picks plenty policiers

Actually, J. Kingston Pierce, editor of The Rap Sheet, picks policiers and noir and thrillers and mysteries and ... anything that falls under the heading of crime fiction.

Linda L. Richards has the straight story:
Readers who aren’t making a weekly pilgrimage to January Magazine’s crime fiction page are missing out on a regular feature. Every Monday, J. Kingston Pierce selects a book that headlines January’s crime fiction section for the next seven days. The selection for the week of March 5 is On the Wrong Track, by Steve Hockensmith, while, for the week of February 26, Pierce chose Fools Rush In, by Ed Gorman.

If you haven’t been keeping track of what Pierce has been Picking (say that five times fast), you actually haven’t missed the boat: 52 weeks of Pierce’s Picks are archived here.
