Fall 2015 - City of Angels
The state of California looms large in the history of mysteries. Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, set in San Francisco, and Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, set in Los Angeles, essentially began the “hard-boiled” tradition of American mysteries. This fall, we’ll concentrate on mysteries set in L.A., but who knows? We may return to the Golden State again…
