    Hugh! I love CJ Box. Can’t wait to listen to this podcast tomorrow. It’s going to be my big treat for the day! His last book was outstanding – I read it in two days. Wish he’d write them faster.

  2. Karen Kaukol says:

    OK – listened to it today. What a great discussion – and it was fun to revisit each of the Joe Pickett books and gain more insight into the characters and series. I’m going to read the stand-alones next – haven’t yet done that but My Blue Heaven sounds really good. BTW, I agree with Box that Michael Connelly would also make for a terrific interview on your show.

  3. Ben Gantz says:

    Michael Connelly is a terrific writer. I’d add John Lescroart. His Dismas Hardy novels vivid characters and enjoyable dialogue. His novels are unusual in that Dismas has a life, not just cases, and there are issues afoot there as well.

    Hugh, describing a federal bureaucrat, “they are imperious, disinterested in locals and completely contemptuous of public opinion.”

    I could not have described the current White House and leadership of both houses of congress any better.

    Oops! Pushed the button too soon. Thanks to Hugh for introducing us to CJ Box!

    These extended interviews could start getting expensive. I’ve bought more than a few books on the strength of a HHS interview but, with the exception of Steven Pressfield’s Killing Rommel, they’ve all been of the non-fiction variety. Now I’m feeling intrigued/compelled/obligated to pick up Open Season and meet Joe Pickett.

    Dang!

    Hugh, Amazon.com might love you but my mail carrier doesn’t.

    • Ebola In NYC, And Possibly A Jihadi Too: The Backdrop For Early Voting October 24, 2014
      Hard to keep an eye on early vote counts when Ebola arrives in the Big Apple, and a hatchet-wielding, police-attacking Queens man may indeed be the latest ISIS-inspired terrorist. That is the backdrop of the campaign’s final stretch and it cannot be helping Democrats that a generalized anxiety about world driven by the virus and ISIS and a very specific set […]
    • More from Mark Steyn on “The [Un]documented Mark Steyn” October 23, 2014
      In response to the terrorist attack on our neighbor and staunch ally to the north, I’ve invited Mark Steyn back to discuss the West’s paralysis in the face of Islamist radicalism on Thursday’s show.  Mark was a guest for two hours on Monday (transcript here), but it was mostly happy talk –show tunes and “cultural arcs” for the most part. Mark, on a book tour […]
