We’ll be on The Point with Mindy Todd – WCAI Cape Cod and Islands NPR – and librarian Jill Erickson this morning at 9 AM ET discussing books on the American West. An appropriately huge subject! You can listen! You can call in! You can ask about the importance of the west in the Chet and Bernie series, and other softball questions like that!

Beginnings (More – Revised)

19 Comments »

September 2nd, 2018 Posted 7:58 am

On Sundays, we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Peter Abrahams novels in chronological order, including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. Today a repeat with revisions for #19, DELUSION (3rd in the prison novels, the others being LIGHTS OUT and END OF STORY). But we forgot to mention – and were reminded by our appearance last week on the monthly book show on WCAI (Cape and Islands NPR) where the subject was pirates – that we’d been down the pirate road ourselves in DELUSION. Hurricanes, buried secrets, an isolated Bahamian island, an actual sort of pirate with an actual sort of cutlass (if very tiny): the pieces are here!

[“Abrahams constructs a powder keg of suspense … He manages to imbue this page-turner with themes of racial and economic injustice while conjuring the ghost of Hamlet’s father to hover in the wings. Stellar.”
– Hallie Ehpron, the Boston Globe]

The man they called Pirate heard a guard coming down the cell block. Pirate had excellent hearing. He could identify the guards just from the sound of their footsteps on the cement floor.

We’ll be on the monthly Cape and Islands NPR book show this morning, 9-10 Eastern. The show is The Point with Mindy Todd – although I think Mindy’s on vacation this week. So I can run wild! So apt, what with the subject matter: pirates!
