Product Description

About the Author

Stuart M. Kaminsky (1934 2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. Born in Chicago, he spent his youth immersed in pulp fiction and classic cinema two forms of popular entertainment which he would make his life s work. After college and a stint in the army, Kaminsky wrote film criticism and biographies of the great actors and directors of Hollywood s Golden Age. In 1977, when a planned biography of Charlton Heston fell through, Kaminsky wrote "Bullet for a Star", his first Toby Peters novel, beginning a fiction career that would last the rest of his life.Kaminsky penned twenty-four novels starring the detective, whom he described as the anti-Philip Marlowe. In 1981 s "Death of a Dissident", Kaminsky debuted Moscow police detective Porfiry Rostnikov, whose stories were praised for their accurate depiction of Soviet life. His other two series starred Abe Lieberman, a hardened Chicago cop, and Lew Fonseca, a process server. In all, Kaminsky wrote more than sixty novels. He died in St. Louis in 2009.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is probably the best state themed mystery available anywhere Feb. 5 2011
By Dawn Ash - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stuart Kaminsky is one of the venerable old guns of mystery fiction. Mystery in the Sunshine State is a rich collection of some of the finest writers anywhere. Authors like Les Standiford and Edna Buchanan are well known and read far beyond the borders of Florida. Readers who have read David Kaufelt and David Beaty, Ellin and Lutz know this is writing that transcends the genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars not as good as other states April 10 2008
By wedofish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read a lot of books that are 'state' oriented. The Minnesota authors' books are the best mysteries. These Florida ones were a bit disappointing. I just didn't like the stories as well as I did other states.
