While I'm finishing my book, Linda Fairstein's Death Angel, I have a question for you. Yesterday, on Facebook, HuffPostBooks asked, "Who is your favorite flawed character from literature?" I'd like to put a twist on that. Who is your favorite flawed character in crime fiction? And, if you'd rather talk about a flawed character in literature, that's OK. But, I know many of us are fans of crime fiction.
Mine is Sherlock Holmes. I don't care of it's in literature, or if we're talking about Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes, Sherlock Holmes is my favorite flawed character. Oh, and he has his flaws. He used drugs. He's certainly impatient with anyone who isn't as brilliant as he is. And, who is? His behavior can come across as rude and abrupt. He suffers from depression at times, particularly when he's bored. He's still my favorite flawed character in crime fiction.
