    The legend of Mrs. O'Leary
    How survivors of the Chicago Fire sought scapegoats 140 years ago Even as the embers of the Chicago Fire cooled, the saga of Mrs. O'Leary began. For 140 years, she has been alternately accused and exonerated of setting off the inferno that consumed...
  • Movie review: 'Cold Weather'

    Movie review: 'Cold Weather'
    "Cold Weather," the latest micro-budget movie from writer-director-editor Aaron Katz, is like an exquisite minimalist painting — its beauty will move you, its simplicity will fool you. For there are layers and complexities to be found in the film,...

    For Grimes, love of stories no mystery
    If she weren't writing mysteries, Martha Grimes says, she might be running a tea shop. You were expecting perhaps an auto-parts store? No, you weren't. Not if you know Grimes' work, which includes 22 mysteries featuring the incisive Scotland Yard...
  • Doors to close at Borders

    The Borders bookstore in Glendale will close by April as part of the bankruptcy plan the Michigan-based retailer unveiled Wednesday. The company is closing 200 underperforming stores across the country, including locations in Pasadena, Sherman Oaks and...

    Chan Lowe: The Frankel/Hasner slugfest
    Mysteries abound in our sacred and profane world—for example, transubstantiation—and they should remain mysteries. This is because (a) they are unsolvable, (b) trying to solve them is borderline blasphemous because by trying, man arrogates...

    Jonathan Kellerman, a shrink-wrapped success
    Perverted plutocrats, a Hollywood madam with a narcissism problem, prostitutes with attitude, indulgent rich kids — Jonathan Kellerman's latest novel has so many unpleasant characters it would be wearying to read if the plot didn't move like a...
  • Book review: 'The Troubled Man'

    Book review: 'The Troubled Man'
    Mother of Mercy, is this the end of Kurt Wallander? Don't worry, the peerless Swedish police detective, the pride of the force in rural Ystad, doesn't get ruthlessly gunned down like Edward G. Robinson's Rico Bandello in "Little Caesar." It's that author...

    Marcia Clark metes out justice in murder-mystery novel
    It's telling that the title of Marcia Clark's murder-mystery debut is smaller than her name on the novel's cover. Clark is best known as the lead prosecutor in the media circus known as the O.J. Simpson murder trial. She's less recognized as an author,...

    'Murdoch Mysteries: Season Three'

    Tea Obreht  can write
    Here's what I like about Tea Obreht's debut novel, "The Tiger's Wife": Obreht can write. She can put a sentence together, inhabit characters with lives far different than hers; she can trace the horrors of a war she's never seen. All that is essential,...
