Hollywood gets a clue and declares the season of the gumshoe, according to an article in the Arizona Republic, Marquee of mystery, which talks about the large number of mystery movies due out this summer. Among those offering their views on mysteries and cinema are Poisoned Pen Press author James Sallis (Drive) and our esteemed editor Barbara Peters.

Georgetown literature professor Maureen Corrigan points out that being a detective looks like a really fun job:

"You think about what the detective does...He's autonomous. He gets to call the shots, names his price, and he has this job that, as some of the scholars say, unites head with hand. He does get to think and he does get to act.

"It's also this fantasy of What would work be like if it were really the greatest job?' And you get to save the world."

Failing that, it's fun to get to write about detectives getting to save the world.
