I Found This Great Book is a website and podcast dedicated to celebrating crime fiction by Black authors from around the world. Each week I will feature a mystery or thriller I read, or I will feature an author from my directory of Black mystery authors. I will also update you on new publications and new additions to the directory. Occasionally, I will have the honor of interviewing some of the great authors in the directory.
