About Those Hills

Every time I go to San Francisco, I remember how much I just love that city. From visit to visit, I also forget about the hills. When people were making appointments with me, they were asking where I was coming from and then me telling them that I could walk to see them since there were no hills. I was dismissing this 'til Sunday afternoon.

After a couple of meetings and a visit to City Lights Bookstore, which was just wonderful, I headed out to explore a couple of yarn shops. At Art Fibers, which I was able to walk to from my hotel, I absolutely melted over the incredible fibers and colors that they had there. They sell yarns by the lengths you need and wind them onto cones. I designed a sweater right there; talk about a real unique souvenir. And I ordered some more yarn since I could not decide between two fibers/colors. From there I headed to ImagiKnit and picked up some Pagewood Farms flower yarn (it has flowers in the yarn) that I am nuts about. As I was leaving this store on 18th Street, I mentioned I was walking over to 24th Street. Now in New York that would be six blocks or six minutes away. Well, I was quickly told, “You have to take the bus; it’s all uphill and then downhill.” I am in pretty good shape, so I walked outside thinking, “HOW bad can it be?”

Well, I quickly saw! That was not a hill; I have skied mountains like that. Plunk a few moguls on it, and it would be a “black diamond" slope. I dutifully went over to the bus stop, and when I got on, I sat in front since I was clueless about where I was going. BIG mistake. First the bus moved up the mountain, stopping at what seemed like every block. In between the numbers, there were “name” streets --- lots of them, thus it was a lot more than six blocks. We hovered on top of the “mountain” while I willed people to get on quickly and then…we went DOWN, which was more terrifying. And though I could see 24th Street, we stopped at every street in between with me cringing at each stop hearing the bus brakes grind. I got to my stop, fought an urge to kiss the ground and then headed to the San Francisco Mystery Bookstore, the oldest mystery bookstore in the U.S., which you can see pictured above. I picked up a Raymond Chandler book, since I had spent the entire time at Bouchercon realizing just how much I did not know about mystery classics like Ross Macdonald, John D. MacDonald and Chandler.

Back to reading in the present, or actually a bit into the future. On the flight to San Francisco, I read the manuscript of Joseph Finder’s upcoming book, BURIED SECRETS, the second in his Nick Heller series, which will be in stores in June. I finished it just before I saw him on Thursday afternoon, and it was great fun to share my impressions and talk to him about it in person. Nick Heller, the “private spy” introduced in 2009’s VANISHED, returns to help search for the kidnapped daughter of his friend, Marshall Marcus, a hedge fund manager who’s made his share of enemies. The plot has some great twists and turns, and the writing is sharp. I’ve read all of Joe’s books and can confidently say this is his best yet, but you can be the judge, too!

This week we’re launching our latest Sneak Peek: An Early Look at an Upcoming Book with BURIED SECRETS. We have 50 specially formatted advance reader editions for readers who want to preview the book and answer some questions about it. Click here to fill out our entry form and answer some preliminary questions about your reading habits, familiarity with Joseph Finder and the genre. This contest ends Thursday, November 4th at noon ET. We want to have responses from all 50 of our readers, so please only enter if you’ll be able to read and answer some questions by Tuesday, November 23rd. These contests are a lot of fun for everyone involved, and if this sounds like your type of book, you’re in for a treat!

Bouchercon was the usual swirl of bookish conversations, seeing friends and attending parties…many parties. Lee Child, who was being honored as a Distinguished Contributor to the Genre, threw a Reacher Creature Party for all attendees on Friday night, which was an incredibly generous gesture. A CBS camera crew followed Lee all weekend filming footage for a "CBS Sunday Morning" segment to run soon. It's scheduled to air Sunday, and you can click here for more information. Joe Hartlaub reviews WORTH DYING FOR, the latest Jack Reacher novel out this week. Yes, it is the second Reacher title this year, as 61 HOURS was released in May and is now in paperback. This definitely confirms Lee as one of the most popular suspense/thriller authors writing today with one of the most compelling characters in Jack Reacher. In his review, Joe says, “The result may or may not be the best Reacher book to date, but it certainly is his most satisfying.” You can also watch a quick trailer for the book here to whet your appetite.

There were so many wonderful panels and interviews: Jacqueline Winspear and Lee Child; Gregg Hurwitz and Michael Connelly; Denise Mina and Val McDermid; Kate Atkinson and Sarah Weinman. I drifted from room to room hearing bookish conversation about writing characters, plotting and developing storylines. And then in the hallways, there were updates on who is doing what --- and catch-ups with people like Gregg (who is writing a book, a screenplay, a comic series and writing/producing the television show "V"), R.J. Ellory, Paul Levine, Wendy Corsi Staub, Keith Raffel (who texted me at one point asking where I was, and we were in the same room!) and my favorite Brit mystery journalist/reviewer/fan, Ali Karim. A host of mystery awards were announced at Bouchercon, including the Anthony, Macavity, Barry, Shamus and Derringer awards. The announcements and ceremonies that accompany these awards are always a highlight of the weekend. John Hart’s THE LAST CHILD won the Barry Award’s Best Novel, which will go nicely with his win in the same category at April’s Edgar Awards. Click here to see our awards page. I will share more Bouchercon memories in the weeks ahead. You can also keep up with awards and such on our Facebook page and blog.

This week we’re also launching a Debut Suspense/Thriller Author Spotlight for THE CRUELEST CUT by Rick Reed, about a detective who is chasing a serial killer with the crime scenes getting increasingly more personal between the two. This is Rick’s first novel, though he chronicled his own serial killer chase while serving as detective in his memoir, BLOOD TRAIL. Rick spent more than 20 years as a detective in the Midwest before retiring to focus on writing, so he’s definitely an expert in this grisly field. We have 20 copies of THE CRUELEST CUT to give away to readers who would like to comment on it. Enter here by Friday, October 29th at noon ET. THE CRUELEST CUT will be in stores on November 2nd.

In our Suspense/Thriller Author Spotlight, we have an interview with John Lutz as well as a review of his latest, MISTER X. Joe Hartlaub says, “Lutz, as he has demonstrated time and again not only with this series but also with his stand-alone works, is capable of scaring the pants off his readers and making them like it. MISTER X is no exception.” We also have Joe's interview with John here. John's signing line at Bouchercon was so long that I did not get to say hi to him.

Iris Johansen is also back this week with CHASING THE NIGHT, her latest featuring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan. Iris has one of the most loyal fan bases of any author, and CHASING THE NIGHT features a very personal, emotional plot between Eve and CIA agent Catherine Ling. Reviewer Amy Gwiazdowski says, “Fans will be left with eager anticipation for the next installment as this one leaves off with a bit of a cliffhanger.” When I read this book, I marveled at how intense this work must be.

One more notable thriller out this week is Raymond Khoury’s THE TEMPLAR SALVATION. THE LAST TEMPLAR was an instant New York Times bestseller in 2006, and his sequel picks up the pace as a terrorist seeks to avenge the CIA killing of his family by unleashing a series of documents that could ignite a holy war. I read this one and enjoyed it, and there is a scene outside the Vatican that is just brilliantly vivid. Reviewer Ray Palen says, “THE TEMPLAR SALVATION is filled with action, chases and mind-blowing historical perspective that will engage fans of this genre and once again place Raymond Khoury back at the forefront of modern historical fiction adventures.

A final review I want to highlight this week is Nancy Pearl’s BOOK LUST TO GO: Recommended Reading for Travelers, Vagabonds, and Dreamers. Nancy may be familiar to you as she’s a librarian who’s written three other "lust" books you can fall in love with. In BOOK LUST TO GO, she offers 120 suggestions for books to read before you visit the actual setting. It’s literary globetrotting! Reviewer Barbara Bamberger Scott says, “BOOK LUST TO GO is a fun read, an erudite view and a helpful guide.” I cannot wait to delve into this one; Nancy never fails to surprise and delight me when I spend time with her.

Last week I named Jennifer Donnelly’s REVOLUTION one of my Bets On picks, the first time I’ve ever chosen a Young Adult book. I’m so excited to share this special interview with Jennifer that really sheds some light on her brilliant book, the plotting and its development. The novel creatively pairs a modern-day teenager with a teen growing up during the French Revolution and how they relate. I just can’t say enough about REVOLUTION.

In some exciting book news, I learned earlier this week that Jean M. Auel’s long-awaited next entry in the Earth’s Children saga, THE LAND OF PAINTED CAVES, is due March 29th. Fans of the series will definitely be circling that date as it’s been almost nine years since THE SHELTERS OF STONE, the fifth book in the series, was released.

What am I reading right now? Well, Marc Eliot’s biography of Paul Simon called PAUL SIMON: A Life. I am a long-time Paul Simon fan, and somewhere in the attic here I have thousands of pages of research on him. Needless to say, I wondered if I would learn anything new from this book, and I am happy to share that there is a lot in there that I did not know. Marc chronicles Paul’s early work in great detail, much of which I did not know. I also did not know that he has not sung “The Late Great Johnny Ace” live since the night at Central Park when someone stormed the stage as he was singing. He did not want people to feel he is trading on John Lennon’s tragic death when he sings this. Lots of gems like that are packed in between the stories that I know. If you are a fan, or know one, it’s fun reading.

I have this routine that I do writing the newsletter opener. I sequester myself in my office, close the door and throw everything on my desk onto the floor so there are no distractions in front of me. Usually I need dead quiet, or I play the same playlist of songs I know that fade into the background even when I have them cranked. Sometimes when I am rushed, they keep me typing faster. Once I am done, when I hit send and am waiting for staff feedback --- and the rest of the newsletter --- I usually end up trolling YouTube for videos. I may look for one of a song I like, or an author who we are writing about. I just click from one to the other always amused at how something related seems to pop up. Confession: I can play a mean air guitar and do some pretty crazy seat dancing on a Friday afternoon once this all is done and I can take my hands from the keyboard. There will be no video of this on YouTube.

Have a great week…find something wonderful to read and enjoy this fall weekend.

When a killer plays mind games with a cop, there are no rules.

The first victim is attacked in her home. Tied to her bed. Forced to watch every unspeakable act of cruelty --- but unable to scream. The second murder is even more twisted. Signed, sealed and delivered with a message for the police, stuffed in the victim’s throat. A fractured nursery rhyme that ends with a warning: “There will be more.” For detective Jack Murphy, it’s more than a threat. It’s a personal invitation to play. And no one plays rougher than Jack. Especially when the killer’s pawns are the people he loves…
