THE HOOK (to be out on March 14) is a book about Wayne, a failed writer, who makes a deal with Boyce, a bestselling writer. Wayne gives Boyce his unsold manuscripts to sell as Boyce's books, and Boyce wants his wife killed before his expensive divorce. I will try to get an ARC.

FLASHFIRE, a new Paker book, will be out this fall, and the next Dortmunder book will be out next year.
