Eric Ambler: A Literary Biography

by Peter Lewis

â??Authoritative and highly readable, Peter Lewis’s recently revised literary biography of Eric Ambler remains the definitive guide to the work of one of
Britain’s most influential thriller writers.’ – Martin Edwards, author of The Golden Age of Murder

Eric Ambler is widely regarded as one of the most important thriller writers of the twentieth century.

In the 1930s he set out to give respectability to a genre that he rightly recognised needed to be rescued from its status as pulp fiction.

With six landmark novels published between 1936 and 1940, Ambler laid the foundations for the post-war generation of writers who raised the spy novel to a form of literature.

Like Graham Greene, Ambler used the ingredients of a thriller to create a series of novels that investigated many aspects of modern life, from totalitarian political regimes to white-collar crime.

And with those books, he transformed the scale and scope of the genre.

But who was the man behind the work?

Edgar Allan Poe Award-winning author Peter Lewis gives us the first full-length study of Amber’s life and work.

It brings us to the heart of the grand master of intrigue through insightful discussions of such popular novels as Epitaph for a Spy , A Coffin for Dimitrios , The Light of Day , (on which the well-known film Topkapi is based), and The Siege of the Villa Lipp – among many others.

By examining the individual books, Peter Lewis shows us how Ambler’s work changed throughout his life – while remaining always topical.

As this book argues, no novelist did more to dissolve the boundaries that separated “popular” from “serious” fiction.

Praise for Peter Lewis

â??Peter Lewis’s book about Eric Ambler is a literate, considerate inspection of the 18 novels of the British writer who transformed the spy thriller from macho, jingoistic, potboiler into a vehicle worthy of genuine literary talent.’ – The Booklist

Peter Lewis is a prize-winning author whose book about John le Carré received the prestigious Edgar Allan Poe award from the Mystery Writers of America as the best critical/non-fiction title of its year. His subsequent book about Eric Ambler was shortlisted for another non-fiction Edgar Allan Poe award as well as for an Anthony Award.

Killer Photographer : The True Story of Rodney Alcala

by Josh Curry

Rodney Alcala is a serial murderer that is most often referred to as the “Dating Game Killer” after he was a contestant on the popular game show “The Dating Game” in 1978.
He was sentenced to death in California in 2010 for committing five murders in the state between 1977 and 1979. It is believed, however, that he may have over 130 victims.
Alcala’s charisma and murderous output have a striking similarity to that of Ted Bundy. More than one police detective has referred to him as a “killing machine.” He was a sexual sadist and specialized in strangling as a form of torture. He would choke his victims into unconsciousness then revive them only to repeat the torture again.
He specialized in creating false photo auditions in which he would book prospective models for a photo shoot then rape and kill them. A traveling serial killer, Alcala would operate out of the Los Angeles area but would journey as far as the Pacific Northwest in search of victims. He would have a locker in Seattle where he would keep a stash of mementos and photographs of his victims.
In September of 2016, authorities released a series of photographs that they believe could be additional victims of Alcala. They are now asking for the public’s help in identifying who the subjects in the photos are.
