Good Read: MEMORY OF DARKNESS by P.A. Brown


I review horror and suspense for a monthly column called "Grimoire" at Dark Scribe magazine. This month, I wanted to call your attention to my column and a little gem called Memory of Darkness. I have been a fan of P.A. Brown's work for some time now (ever since I read her amazing L.A. Heat). If you like solidly crafted crime thrillers, P.A. is your man, er, woman.

Here's a little snippet from my review:

P.A. Brown is one of those writers who should be as famous as P. Cornwell, if there were any justice in the world. The author of a whole series of competent, well-researched, and catch-your-breath suspenseful thrillers all centered around the seamy (and gay) underbelly of Los Angeles, Brown’s oeuvre is one that should be embraced by anyone who loves a seamlessly plotted thriller with characters that are anything but typical. Brown writes lean, muscled prose and captures the male viewpoint so effortlessly that one wonders how she does it.

  1. This is a great review, Rick and I am with you 100% about P.A. getting her due. She is an amazing storyteller. I get sucked into her books every time.
