About this title

Synopsis:

The past president of the Mystery Writers of America shares the results of his nationwide interviews with eighteen of the top mystery writers in the country, including Tony Hillerman, Mickey Spillane, Sara Paretsky, Martin Cruz Smith, Sue Grafton, and others.

From the Inside Flap:

Edgar award winner and past President of the Mystery Writers of America Stuart Kaminsky brings mystery fans into the living rooms, offices, and gardens of his most talented friends and fellow writers in this tribute to the mystery genre. Professional photographer Laurie Roberts captures the writers, their families, homes, and pets while Kaminsky probes into their personal lives and writing to go "behind the mystery" writer.

Readers will be entertained and enlightened by Faye and Jonathan Kellerman's introspect into how religion plays a role in their lives and writing while Elmore Leonard shares his Ten Rules of Writing. Ann Rule explains her obsession with serial killers; Robert Parker unveils his wall of baseball memorabilia; Sue Grafton answers what comes after Z; and Mickey Spillane reminisces about his flying days. Kaminsky encompasses everything from film adaptations of their books to old writing habits that never die. Behind the Mystery takes its readers on a tour of the homes, lives, and idiosyncrasies of America's talented mystery writers.
