PRAISE FOR ART IN THE BLOOD

"A solid collection not to be missed by mystery fans. Sum Even better, however, is the fact that McDonald is clearly intimately familiar with the authors' work. He cites character and plot details that reveal close reading, and it propels these interviews into interesting territory."
   —JOHN KENYON, Things I'd Rather Be Doing

"For real author interviews without the ego, I suggest you pick up Craig McDonald's Art In The Blood. McDonald is one of the finest interviewers I've read for a long time, genuinely interested and incredibly intelligent."
   —RAY BANKS, author of Saturday's Child & Donkey Punch

"I love reading interviews and this book contains the first interviews I've found in a long time that delve into new territory and this book does provide some new insights, and interviews with authors you don't normally read interviews with."
   —E.C. MORGAN

"Craig McDonald is widely considered to be the best interviewer in crime fiction. He goes into each interview so well equipped with research and thought provoking questions that he possesses the singular ability to put the interviewee at easeSum. The interviews here are possessed of such depth that they become something rare, informative, thought-provoking and re-readableSum. If you're curious to get an insider's glimpse into the state of the genre today, this is the book for you."
