Strand Magazine Headlines an Unpublished J.M. Barrie Play, plus Ruth Ware, Jo Nesbo, and Charles Todd…
Highlights of our current issue include an unpublished J.M. Barrie play titled The Reconstruction of the Crime. Our latest issue also features an exclusive interview with the talented and prolific James Rollins, an article by Jo Nesbo, and fiction by Ruth Ware, Charles Todd and Max Allan Collins.
The unpublished J.M. Barrie play marks the first time The Strand has published a work by the legendary creator of the Peter Pan stories and plays. Described by some as a hilarious send-up of a Sherlock Holmes story, The Reconstruction of the Crime is a bedroom farce that involves mistaken identity and a night full of misunderstandings in a provincial hotel.
We are proud to present Ruth Ware’s “The Property Ladder,” a tale of obsession with a new house that is not all it seems, and Charles Todd’s “Jeopardy” which takes us to post-World War I England where Inspector Rutledge must solve a murder case involving a respected war-time acquaintance. With “Quarry’s Gamble,” Max Allan Collins pushes the clock back to 1975, when hit man Quarry is on the prowl in Las Vegas. Meanwhile John M. Floyd sounds an alarm on the hazards of escaping from the local penitentiary in “Crow Mountain.”
Best-selling author James Rollins, a man of endless ideas and interests, spoke to us about how he started writing, which authors inspired him, and what advice aspiring writers might consider.
In “Thirst : On Writing, Harry, and Flying Jumbo Jets,” Norwegian author Jo Nesbø talks about writing the Harry Hole series and how he balances his imagination, the literary traditions of the past, and the appetites of his readers to create his best-selling novels.
We have the latest on the Strand Critics Awards, where Clive Cussler has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to the mystery and thriller writing genre.
We also have the latest book reviews of authors such as Mary Higgins Clark, Kimberly McCreight, Patricia Highsmith, Tana French. And we’ve also included YA and Audiobook reviews including, Ransom Riggs, M.R. Carey, and Kate Russell.
