Having lived in the Washington, DC-area for a long time and followed Mr. Yardley's review columns, I was surprised and enhearted to see him mention Mosley, Willeford, Pelecanos, Lippman, Higgins, and others. Given the small space (4K words, I think) he had to write in, he touched on some of the noteworthy authors, but certainly not all of them. It was good ink for PI novels and crime fiction.
