Crime & Punishment

In Dwyer Murphy’s An Honest Living, an unwitting private eye gets caught up in a crime of obsession between a reclusive literary superstar and her bookseller husband. In The Family Chao, three apparently successful brothers draw suspicion following the death of their father in Lan Samantha Chang’s small-town murder mystery featured on Barack Obama’s 2022 Summer Reading List. Join these writers, along with CrimeReads associate editor Olivia Rutigliano, for a discussion of disturbing secrets, hair-raising encounters, and what exactly makes a crime story.
