Carlon's Gift. "Crime of Silence" and "The Unquiet Night" by Patricia Carlon. [review]
It is the fashion, when discussing Patricia Carlon's thrillers, to claim that she has been shamefully ignored in her home country. So what? If Miss Carlon (1927–2002) had been a genius of the running track or swimming pool and couldn't get a gig in the Australian Olympic team, that would be a scandal. But she was a writer. She was ignored. What else is new? What we really want to know is whether her thrillers are worth all the fuss. Do they deserve to be reissued after being out of print for many years?
