During September, I was lucky enough to pay a visit to the renowned Poisoned Pen bookstore in Scottsdale, Arizona – one of America’s biggest and best-known mystery bookstores, run by the highly knowledgeable and charming Barbara Peters, and a necessary stop for any crime writer visiting the States.
After meeting crime fans and signing copies of The Taint of Midas – which was published over the summer in the US – we adjourned to a fabulous Tex-Mex restaurant for superb margaritas and the biggest plate of nachos I’ve ever seen.
During dinner, I very much enjoyed chatting to Steve Schwartz, who’s led a more interesting life than many and is married to Angela, a lady of Greek stock who has since sent me some of her old family recipes, most of which were new to me.
Here’s Steve’s very kind review of The Taint of Midas. You’ll find this and numerous other crime fiction reviews on the Poisoned Pen’s website at www.poisonedpen.com .
ANNE ZOUROUDI ‘THE TAINT OF MIDAS’
Author of the Mysteries of the Greek Detective, books with a touch of mythology set in almost-contemporary Greece, and featuring lots of fabulous Greek food.
