Review of Dolores Hitchens’ Footsteps in the Night and Beat Back the Tide in Bookgasm

A positive review of two reprinted crime tales by the late American novelist Dolores Hitchens was published this month in Bookgasm. “The two stand-alone novels gathered here by Stark House Press, FOOTSTEPS IN THE NIGHT and BEAT BACK THE TIDE, demonstrate Hitchens’s skill at presenting multiple characters within a single framework,” writes reviewer Alan Cranis. “Nicholas Litchfield, a noted editor, reviewer and author, provides an introduction where he notes how Hitchens made her mark in the mostly male-dominated publishing world of her time, and how she incorporates her fondness for closely held secrets and skeletons in the closet into her novels.”
