SHOOT THE PRESIDENT, ARE YOU MAD?
HERE’S GOOD NEWS FROM PETER ROZOVSKY’S DETECTIVES WITHOUT BORDERS BLOG, ABOUT A CHARACTER I'D FORGOTTEN ABOUT, BUT REALLY ENJOYED. . .
Back between 1965 and 1971, Frank McAuliffe brought out three collections of linked stories about an amazing international hit man and master of disguise named Augustus Mandrell. Another Mandrell book lay unpublished for more than forty years, scuttled, it is said, by the unfortunate coincidence of its title with the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Shoot the President, Are You Mad? will finally see the light of day in the first quarter of 2010, thanks to THE OUTFIT, a new crime-fiction publisher headed by JT Lindroos and Sean Wallace. The book will take its place beside the first three Augustus Mandrell books: Of All the Bloody Cheek, Rather a Vicious Gentleman and For Murder I Charge More.
