Content note: death, suicide, gunshot.

For the last Page One of 2013, Charles Adrian serves up a dish of murder. Expect classic writers alongside a couple of relative whippersnappers. Happy holidays, everybody!

George Lewkowicz, who is mentioned, is featured in Page One 60.

Charles Adrian subsequently started to read The Leper Of Saint George by Ellis Peters while flying short-haul across Europe and left the book on the plane. Much sadness.
