Nice to hear you read from SLIDE & chat at Mysterious Bookshop this past week. Oh, and I did catch the Zapruder film of your killer Karaoke cover of Journey -- excellent rendition!

Hey, Jason,

Just finished Slide! Terrific! Bruen said part three makes SLIDE seem like a cozy, Jaysus!

A coincidence, in my book I referred to the Beatles "Let it Be." And mentioned John Lennon, implying he was the performer. Similar to page 158 in SLIDE. A beautiful dark haired woman set me straight. You should be so lucky.

Hope to see you again at next year's L. A. Times Festival of Books, or sooner if you’re going to be here on the Coast before then.

I just finished Lights Out and wanted to congradulate you on the character of Christina Mercado. Hard-boiled crime fiction like this rarely produces three-dimensional female characters. You know, they're always some variation of the hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold, or a femme farale, or some impossibly perfect 23 year-old runway model with a Harvard Law degree, but I loved Christina. She was very real - I understood her motivations and actions (not to give anything away) up until the very end. Nice one.
