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 finished Cold Caller on the plane on the way home from Denver. Great story. The gang over at The yahoo group rara_avis have been having a "what u reading" discussion and your name is prominent on their reading lists.
Love your books...I have read them all twice! I just finished The Follower and am already waiting for the next one to come out. PS Love your collaborations with Ken Bruen. Best of luck and much success with your book sales and hope to meet you at a book signing in LA one of these days
Hi Jason! when did you get started writing, in kindergarten?! sorry, you look back fondly on remarks like that in years to come. just found your name on a link from Megan Abbott's website. will read you. I am aspiring at the advanced age of 150 to finishing my noir novel! all the best!
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.
