A blog dedicated to reviewing crime novels published by independent presses everywhere.

I picked up this 1972 printing of Joe Gores' A Time of Predators a couple weeks ago, but I didn't really look at it until yesterday. I knew it was ugly, and looked like the cover of some third rate horror novel, but I didn't stop and really look at it. When I did I was surprised to see that the artist had drawn the man's hands with the hands backwards. The thumbs are on the outside, and there's just no way I can think of that it would be possible to get a hand in that position. Who let that slip through unnoticed?
Welcome to the Indie Crime Blog. As the name implies, this blog is dedicated to reviews of crime fiction published by independent presses. There are many books published every year that seem to be ignored for a variety of reasons. The books sections of newspapers are getting smaller. Bookstores give more shelf space to more established authors. I could go on, but you get it.My intent is to review books both old and new in the hopes that some deserving writers and worthy publishers will gain some exposure.
