Title: 
Drive

Much later, as he sat with his back against an inside wall of a Motel 6 just north of Phoenix, watching the pool of blood lap toward him, Driver would wonder whether he had made a terrible mistake. Later still, of course, there'd be no doubt. But for now Driver is, as they say, in the moment. And the moment includes this blood lapping toward him, the pressure of dawn's late light at windows and door, traffic sounds from the interstate nearby, the sound of someone weeping in the next room....Thus begins Drive, a new novella by one of the nation's most respected and honored writers of noir fiction.

Author: 
Thomas Harris
Title: 
Black Sunday

This is the 1975 debut novel from Harris, who went on to write Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal. Black Sunday pits an American Vietnam veteran of dubious sanity and PLO terrorist accomplices against a ruthless Israeli security agent and the FBI in a race to kill the 80,000 spectators at the Super Bowl, with the president of the United States in attendance. The plot (large-scale terrorist act perpetrated in the United States by an American) was considered somewhat improbable when first reviewed but is considerably less so today.

Title: 
Dirty White Boys

After killing a black inmate, the brutal Lamar Pye breaks out of the Oklahoma State Penitentiary along with his retarded cousin, Odell, and a hapless artist-turned-felon named Richard. They embark on a desperate run across Oklahoma and Texas, pursued by state troopers. The escapees hide out with a convict groupie who has lived alone since murdering her parents as an adolescent. In a parody of domesticity, Lamar embraces these losers as the family he never knew. Unlettered Lamar is a natural leader, more intelligent by far than his pursuers, but his gang screws up every time at a terrible cost in bloodshed. Read more about CSI: Madison - Dirty White Boys

Author: 
Philip Kerr
Title: 
March Violets

The brutality and corruption of Nazi Germany serve as the backdrop for this impressive debut mystery novel. Scottish-born Kerr re-creates the period accurately and with verve; the novel reeks of the sordid decade that saw Hitler's rise to power. Bernhard Gunther is a hard-boiled Berlin detective who specializes in tracking down missing persons--mostly Jews. He is summoned by a wealthy industrialist to find the murderer of his daughter and son-in-law, killed during the robbery of a priceless diamond necklace. Gunther quickly is catapulted into a major political scandal involving Hitler's two main henchmen, Goering and Himmler. Read more about CSI:Madison - March Violets

Title: 
Caught Stealing

It's three thousand miles from the green fields of glory, where Henry "call me Hank" Thompson once played California baseball, to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where the tenements are old, the rents are high, and the drunks are dirty. But now Hank is here, working as a bartender and taking care of a cat named Bud who is surely going to get him killed. Blood in buckets, bodies in heaps. But the dialogue's fresh, and the pages turn in a superviolent debut. Read more about CSI: Madison - Caught Stealing
