Mrs. Publicist: Fifteenth of the month, when Peter Abrahams aka Spencer Quinn discusses a character name from one of his books, often a Chet and Bernie. What’ll it be today?

Pete: How about we get to HEART OF BARKNESS?

Mrs. P: The next Chet and Bernie, coming July 2 but available now for preorder?

Pete: That’s the one! Specifically, there’s Lotty Pilgrim, one of the central characters, a has-been country music star.

Mrs. P: Country music? Bernie’s a big fan – as are you, I hear.

Pete: True. Lotty seemed like one of those names that hearkens back – kind of an echo of Dottie, as in the great Dottie West. As for Pilgrim, you might say – well, a bit too on the nose. But we’re talking country music! That gives us a license to be on the nose.

Mrs. P: I understand she sings a Song For Chet.

Pete: Spoiler alert!

Mrs. P: In that case, see you next month for more of What’s In A Name!
