Anything You Say Can and Will Be Used Against You 

My review of Laurie Lynn Drummond's debut collection of short stories is now up at January Magazine. If the review doesn't make it perfectly clear, this will: I'd be hard-pressed to find a better short story collection that will be published this year. Drummond's stories of five female cops are drenched in authenticity, procedural detail, and a wonderfully evocative writing style that's extremely assured. I've been talking about this in email with Craig and we both agree that it's ruining us, just a little bit, for more conventional crime fiction that feature police officers. It's that good.
