It's more than three years since PRINT THE LEGEND—my novel about the death of Ernest Hemingway and J. Edgar Hoover's secret war on writers—saw the light of day, but in the past week it was given fresh attention from a couple of very different directions.

Nick Harmer of Death Cab for Cutie recently recommended PRINT THE LEGEND, along with key books by Ken Bruen, James Sallis, George Pelecanos, Gillian Flynn and several others. You can read Nick's tour list of crime fiction reads, and listen to his thoughts on crime fiction, here.

On Tuesday, PRINT, and the greater Hector Lassiter series, was touted by Kaite Stover as a favorite spring read on the Book Doctors on KCUR out of Kansas City. The discussion about PTL occurs around the 12:30 mark, but the whole show is interesting and has some engaging discussion on audio books, eBooks, and a number of other great recommended reads. Check it out here.
