Last night, Wayne gave a terrific presentation at Book Passage in Corte Madera, Ca., on the crimes he solves and the crimes we watch on the local TV news. It's fascinating to learn what is really going on behind the scenes and how many crimes we hear about that are really linked.
He told one anecdote, which was so long, convoluted and unbelievable, it was almost a "shaggy dog" story with its twists and turns. Yet, it also mirrored perfect fiction: it was ripe with conflict, rising stakes, points of no return, and no shortage of pathological characters and larger-than-life good guys.
Wayne's book: Blood Over Badge is available online and in book stores. He's working on getting the screen play picked up. Hollywood - I know you read this blog. Are you listening?
