Today we’re happy to welcome a new member to the Crime Fiction Lover team. Vicki Weisfeld is a literary expert based in Princeton, New Jersey and covers all sorts of books and audiobooks on her website all about writing, vweisfeld.com. Here on CFL, however, she’ll be focusing her energy on crime books and her favourite authors include Michael Connelly, George Pelecanos, Adrian McKinty, Alan Furst and Frederick Forsyth.
“Because I like to know how things work, I like realistic fiction, procedurals, and techno-thrillers. Because I like to know how people work, I like courtroom dramas and the kind of thriller in which an ordinary person is drawn in deeper and deeper,” says Vicki. “I’m put off by heroes who have amazingly unbelievable skills, and by plots where there’s one or more big, ‘Huh?'”
Vicki’s first review for us is the audiobook version of Hold the Dark, the excellent wilderness noir novel by William Giraldi. You can read that here. In the meantime, please join us in welcoming her to our team. You can follow Vicki on Twitter, and meet the rest of the CFL team here.
