A Blurb for No Plan B
In Gerrardsville, Colorado, a woman dies under the wheels of a moving bus. Authorities rule the death a suicide. Accept that Jack Reacher saw a man in a gray hoodie and jeans push the woman to her death.
When they rule another homicide an accident, Reacher knows this is no coincidence. And that there is no time to waste to track down those responsible.
But Reacher is unaware that these crimes are part of something much larger. And to Reacher, it doesn’t matter.
Lee and Andrew Child on Writing
In honor of their book release, the brothers gave Crime Reads an interview about their writing routines and what advice they would give to beginning writers. You can listen to the interview here.
I especially like hearing about writers who don’t start at four in the morning.
A refreshing look into the writing lives of a very successful team. I can’t wait to read it.
