I walked to the Carle Place station this afternoon and made my way to The Mysterious Bookshop thanks to HopStop.com. The last time I met Crais was almost ten years ago at an L.A. Requiem signing at Partners & Crime. Great to see his career going strong with Chasing Darkness.
Also great to see Joe and Bonnie from the late, lamented Black Orchid Bookshop. Added incentive for me was the chance to meet Lineup editors Richie Narvaez and Anthony Rainone.

I had to leave the festivities early to catch the train home with my brother, but Richie and Anthony signed a copy of The Lineup for Crais, which he received with enthusiasm and said he would read on the plane.
