It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

No Sale by Patrick Conrad – a thriller in love with film classics

Must each man kill the thing he loves?

For Victor Cox, a professor of film history, the Hollywood films noirs of the 1940s and 1950s are more real than his daily life. When his wife is found drowned, Cox is the first murder suspect. Subsequently, a series of gruesome killings of young women, all modelled on violent deaths in films that he knows and loves, lead the police back to Cox, who starts to doubt his own sanity and innocence.

    There is a nice review of this book at International Noir Fiction, by Glenn Harper, I just noticed.

    What a great idea! A crime fiction (and film) lover’s kind of novel…

    Thanks very much, Rhian. Very keen to get my hands on this as a crime/film-lover and to further my reading of Belgian crime fiction. Loved the trailer – what an innovative way to publicise the book! It’s also made me want to go back and watch all of those wonderful films again (apart from Psycho!).
