I thought those rara-avarians who love both noir and regional true crime might find this of interest. Edgar Award winners Megan Abbott & Theresa Schwegel are going on tour in July, and they're hoping to find out about any famous/infamous true crimes that are set where they're visiting. Go here for more information:
If I remember correctly, Megan Abbott's latest, BURY ME DEEP, came about from a night of drinking with Poisoned Pen's Patrick Millikin, who told her stories of one of Phoenix's killings of the 1930s. read more about that new book here: www.meganabbott.com (it's fantastic, by the way!).
