Let's see ... just returned from a visit to MysteryBooks
( where I picked up a copy of Bill Pronzini's
"Crazybone: A 'Nameless Detective' Novel," Dennis Lehane's "Mystic River"
... which came with a free copy of A Drink Before the War ("Free With Purchase..." is printed onto the cover so this offer should be good everywhere ... and if you live in the DC area, Dennis Lehane will be at MysteryBooks, Sunday, February 4, 1-2 pm and with George P. Pelecanos at the Borders in Bailey's Crossroads at 7:30 pm), and the highlight of the evening

... meeting our fellow rara-avian, George P. Pelecanos and getting a signed copy of his latest "Right As Rain."
