Interview conducted by email. Some questions and answers have been edited.
Congrats on the release of your fifth Jackson Donne novel, BLIND TO SIN. What does your protagonist get up to in this installment of the series?
Thanks, Steve! Jackson Donne has spent the time in between his last book, AN EMPTY HELL, and this one in prison. He put himself there voluntarily as a sort of penance for the deaths he’s been connected to over his years as a private investigator. His sometimes partner, Matt Herrick, puts Donne in touch with his father Kenneth, a prisoner at the same prison. Kenneth Herrick gets them both out of jail and immediately begins planning a heist involving the Federal Reserve of New Jersey. Suddenly, Jackson Donne and Matt Herrick have to make a choice, participate in the heist or put their own lives on the line. Yay horrible choices! It often makes it so much fun for readers!
