I just read that part of Bust, complete with the comments about the public reaction to the swans being killed vs. the Tinkers, both cases solved by Jack Taylor in the earlier book. It sent me flipping through Tinkers to see if I had missed Dillon, or if he had appeared under a different name, as Brant did in Tinkers. Thanks for confirming he's a original creation.

So far I'm really enjoying Bust. I was a bit afraid the seams might show, since your two writing styles are pretty different, but I haven't found any. I do like that the book retains one of my favorite Bruen-isms (though I bet you wrote some of them), having a character think something, then say the exact same thing out loud -- it cracks me up every time.
