Blood and Gore at Prices You Can Afford

Another month is upon us and now seems a good time to look at our more recently acquired dollops of crime and punishment.

At 5191 we have Alexander McGregor`s The Law Killers, a collection of true crime stories from |Dundee. Journalist-turned-author Alexander turns his hand to both fiction and fact, as anyone familiar with his novel Lawless can confirm. Most true crime collections with a local/regional slant  have a relatively limited market, particularly when they are published by a small, independent publisher. A shame really, as they`re often very good.  The Law Killers was the exception that proved the rule as it was a great success, probably the result of Mr McG`s  appearances on TV crime documentaries.

 Linda Regan is an actress and author  ( who has the good fortune to be published by the Chesterfield-based Creme de la Crime publishing house. Copies of her book Behind You can be found at  2959 and 5194 in our listings.

These are only a couple of the crime titles we have in stock at present, chosen partly because they are relatively recent acquisitions and partly because they are inexpensive, given the current economic climate.

Whether you`re looking for collectable crime or have a liking for bloodshed at bargain basement prices, just remember, Hoonaloon`s our name and crime is our game !" *

All the Best,

* As are history, mythology, antiquarian fiction and much else, but whilst writing this I went into `50s b-movie mode and felt I should "be like an alligator and make it snappy".
