This Just In...
What's New in the P.I. World
(Plus Random Thoughts & Other Provocations)

  1. Bouchercon 2014: Murder at the Beach
    At long last, a Bouchercon within spitting distance! The Girl Detective herself, mystery author Diana Killian, and I will be attending Bouchercon 2014 in Long Beach, California from November 13-16, just a little ways down the road from our secret detective headquarters in Palmdale. I'll even be moderating a panel, entitled "P.I.s Coast to Coast" and I'll be grilling Rex Burns, Greg Herren, Thomas B. Sawyer and Cathi Stoler on how much location and regional flavour matters in a private eye novel. The answer? A lot! We're one of the very first panels listed in the programme, scheduled at some ungodly hour (who knew there was an eight-thirty in the morning, too?), but what the hell! Let's get the party started right. And if you want me in the meantime, I'll be in the bar...
  2. Coen Bros. & George Clooney Do Mannix!
    Eddie Mannix, that is. But a comedy based on the legendary 1950s Hollywood fixer, also starring Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Ralph Fiennes and 21 Jump Street buddies Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill just might be a lot of fun. Unfortunately, we're going to have to wait until February 2016 to see it.
  3. So Long, Jimbo
    A spontaneous tribute from me, and "Remembering Rockford" by author Craig McDonald.
  4. Inherent Vice to Debut at NYC Film Festival This Fall
    Hotshot filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's whack-a-doo P.I. novel Inherent Vice is set to make its debut at the New York Film Festival on October 4, followed by a limited theatrical release in December. Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro star.
  5. Thrilling Detective Finally Gets a Decent Search Engine
    I've been meaning to upgrade the search engine for this site for years, and now it's done. This isn't a limited search, or a hit-or-miss fishnet with holes big enough to drive a Buick through. Nope, it's a full-feldged search engine that works the way it's supposed to. Thank you, Mr. Google.
  6. The Fade Out
    Oh man, I'm licking my lips, just thinking about this one. Crime comic kingpins Ed Brubaker (words) and Sean Phillips (art), the same bad boys that brought you Criminal, Sleeper and Fatale, return to the crime beat with possibly their biggest and most ambitious chunk of noir yet. No vampires, no temporarily dead superheroes, no omnipotent beasts from the underworld -- just a sprawling multi-part saga of 1948 Hollywood (pretty much noir ground zero), revolving around a tortured writer, a doomed starlet, a studio head possibly off his rocker and, oh yes, his troubleshooting gun-for-hire who just may be in over his head. (August 2014)
  7. AMC Renews Breaking Bad Spinoff
    The new show, Better Call Saul, which will feature slimeball New Mexico attorney Saul Goodman and his private eye/fixer Mike Ehrmantraut, has had its November 2014 premiere delayed until early next year. But the network has already ordered up a second season. Go figure.
  8. Joe Lansdale's Hap Collins and Leonard Pine Heading for Television?
    Well, that's the rumour, anyway. But is television ready for Lansdale? Variety reports that SundanceTV is developing Hap and Leonard,a project based on Joe Lansdale's odd couple of best friends and trouble-prone Texas shitkickers. Jim Mickle and Nick Damici, who did the recent Cold in July with Michael C. Hall and Sam Shepard, will be adapting Lansdale's stories, with Mickle also directing.
  9. Cold in July
    Keep an eye out for this nasty little piece of noir, currently wowing 'em on the film festival circuit. It's based on the 1992 novel of the same name by Joe Lansdale, and stars Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson as Jim Lee Luke, a shit-kicker P.I. (and hog farmer).
