Killers comin’ at ya

Running into my local Walgreen’s at lunch for something, what should I see looking back at me from the paperback rack?


I love buying books from drugstores. It always reminds me of being a kid, walking up to the drugstore in summer to score reading material. You expect to find good books in a bookstore, but coming across a really good book on a turning wire rack in a drugstore was more exciting just because you never knew what you’d find.

Full disclosure: Jason Pinter is one of the Killer Year group of debut novelists, to which I also belong.

The Mark is going with me on the plane to NYC tomorrow, on my way to Thrillerfest.

Another great book from a Killer Year compadre that has just come out is The Cleaner by Brett Battles:


The word on the street is that The Cleaner will clean your clock for you. I’m looking forward to snatching up a copy at Thrillerfest, making Brett sign it, and reading it on the flight home.
