Leighton Gage Has Died

Crime fiction writer Leighton Gage has passed away. He was 71 years old.

Over the course of Gage’s career, he wrote a seven-book series starring a Brazilian law enforcement officer named Chief Inspector Mario Silva. Soho Press senior editor Juliet Grames offered this tribute:

Leighton was a backbone of the crime fiction community as well as the Soho Crime family. A tireless author advocate with a powerful social media presence (he founded the blog Murder Is Everywhere, which is devoted to international crime fiction), Leighton was a mentor and friend to many authors at various stages in their careers.
