Crime Always Pays: News

Irish crime writer and overall patron saint of all who read and write Irish crime fiction has decided to pull back the throttle a bit on his awesome blog Crime Always Pays.  The CAP blog is such a crucial  resource for those of us who dig this genre, and I cannot say enough good about Declan the writer, or more importantly, the person. Of course, I have never met him( hopefully someday, just like all of you other web friends, I will) but via his actions and words, it is a no-brainer to make such a claim.

You can get all the details of the news, the reasons for the decision, and get a link to the Irish crime Facebook Group that Declan is passing the torch to HERE

So, here's to you Mr. Burke.  I wish you success in all your future endeavors, and pass on a heartfelt thanks for the help, knowledge, and laughs, you and CAP have provided me the last couple of years.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
