Gotta Work Like Hell Today

scaredofcat.jpgMy friend Jonathan sent this to me. It’s from a website called Thrillist. That’s right gentlemen, fear the kitty. I love the “stop right there” gesture.

I’ve really got to work today, because for some reason I watched bad TV all day yesterday and didn’t do a thing.

I got a nice mention recently in the Washington Post, in a new-in-paperback section. Thank you, Washington Post!

There are the high-profile murders, the ones that lead to tense press conferences, triumphant arrests and riveting trials. And then there are the other murders, the ones that don’t make the front page, that haven’t been solved. In The Restless Sleep: Inside New York City’s Cold Case Squad (Penguin, $15), Stacy Horn follows the dogged detectives at work on four of these low-profile murder cases — that of a drug-dealing couple from 1996, an off-duty cop from 1977, a 14-year-old girl from 1988 and a young Southern woman from 1951. “While the rest of the world has forgotten the cases that have gone cold, if they ever even noticed them in the first place,” writes Horn, “the Cold Case Squad reaches into our worst past and yanks these victims back from oblivion.”

I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.
