Ellin's at his best in the short form but a few of his novels are standouts, DREADFUL SUMMIT (his debut novel) namely among them. EIGHTH CIRCLE isn't fact, I believe it won an Edgar for that year.

You simply can't go wrong with Wilson. And LEGACIES is no exception...but don't expect another isn't quite up to the excellence of that work. But it's close - and it's great to see Jack back in action!
