I’ll be on a panel along with a former prosecutor
and a forensic expert to talk about the latest headline-making
crimes. I hope to avoid verbally stumbling and bringing shame
upon my ancestors.

PHOENIX, AZ: “ThrillerFest”
At the International Thriller Writers’ first convention,
I’ll be on a panel called “What Thrills Us?” where
I imagine I’ll do little else but discuss The
Intelligencer and Killing Caravaggio. More seriously, it sounds like
this will be a fun event, many of my favorite scribblers
be there, and I encourage anyone who loves thrillers to
attend. For more about the four-day fiesta, check out:

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN: “The
World Championships of Magic”
Sadly, I’m not a competitor. I wish I were, but not
being able to perform a single magic trick I don’t
imagine I’d do all that well. This is a research thing
because one of the present-day characters in Killing
a mercenary, is also an amateur magician, and while up to
no good in Europe he takes a detour to compete in this event.
I mention this here on the off chance any of you reading
this are familiar with Stockholm and feel like killing a
minute or two by offering me advice about the city. If so,
thanks! Also, any Stockholmites who want their Intelligencer signed, don’t hesitate to ask me over email.
