Poets of the Tabloid Murder Redux

Recently, I had the pleasure of chatting with Steven Nester of PRX's Poets of the Tabloid Murder about all things RED RIGHT HAND. That interview is now streaming if you'd like to check it out. And if you missed my last appearance on Steven's show, in which we talked about THE KILLING KIND, you can listen to that here.


BOLO Book's Top Reads of 2016 is a stellar list. Four of his selections were among my favorite books of the year. Four others, I've been dying to read. One wasn't even on my radar, but sounds right up my alley. One is the latest entry in a series I keep meaning to check out. And one, to my delight, is RED RIGHT HAND.

If you're looking to buy gifts for the crime-fic fans in your life, give Kristopher's full post a read. It's chock full of great books by talented authors. I'm honored to be counted among them.

Hendricks in the Austin Chronicle

Today, the Austin Chronicle's Wayne Allen Brenner highlighted THE KILLING KIND and RED RIGHT HAND alongside fellow Mulholland author Joe Ide's IQ in his feature about thrillers that'd make killer presents. To say I'm honored is an understatement—and the fact that Brenner's piece crackles with style and wit makes his praise doubly satisfying. Thanks, Wayne. Glad you dug 'em.

Appearance: Letterpress Books, 11/26

This Saturday, 11/26, is Small Business Saturday. Conceived as something of an antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's intended to encourage holiday shoppers to buy local.

Personally, I think it's a terrific idea... which is why you'll find me at Letterpress Books in Portland's Northgate Plaza this Saturday from 12PM to 3PM.

This isn't a big, formal reading or anything. I'll just be hanging out, chatting, and signing books. Know someone who'd like a personalized copy of THE KILLING KIND or RED RIGHT HAND this holiday season? Swing on by! And if that someone is you, I promise I won't judge...

RED RIGHT HAND a Daily Express Best!

I'm chuffed (yes, chuffed) to report that the UK's Daily Express named RED RIGHT HAND a Best New Thriller! Here's a taste of what they had to say:
"RED RIGHT HAND is an explosive, fast-paced follow-up to THE KILLING KIND... With strong characters and a complex plotline, RED RIGHT HAND has the essence of a great action movie. Ultimately, Holm has done exactly what a good writer should do: he makes you desperate to know what’s coming next."
I confess, I didn't expect to find myself in a British tabloid today, much less that I'd be so happy about it. Oh, and don't take the fact that they also championed the Brexit as evidence my book is terrible; I'm pretty sure that wasn't their Arts Editor's doing.
