Jack Webb, R. I. P.

The mystery writer, of course, not the actor.His dates January13,1916 - February12, 2008.  He also wrote as John Farr.  This link will take you to my review of one of his novels from 1001 Midnights.

Vow! Didn't realize he was still alive. And I'm still wondering whether the Jack Webb who is in the true crime Library of America collection was really this writer, not the actor.

Did Webb died in February of 2008, or just this month? It seems that news doesn't travel fast, if he did in fact pass away last year. What's the story, Bill? Where did you hear this information?

Cheers,
Jeff

Got this from Steve Lewis, via Al Hubin. I suppose he passed away last year w/o anyone's having noticed.
