A brilliant man and excellent writer with a caustic wit and the ability to turn a phrase. My favourite line of his: "A writer must always tell the truth, unless he is a journalist."

Subject: [GAdetection] Death Likes It Hot (1954), by the late Gore Vidal (Edgar Box) (Passing Tramp)
Gore Vidal has died. I thought I would mark this event by reviewing his third and last Edgar Box detective novel. I had blogged about the other two back in May. The last one, Death Likes It Hot, was my favorite of the three. RIP Edgar Box.
