A Quick Five #2 - Sean Doolittle

A quick five questions with Omaha's favorite son, one of the tallest men in Mystery and most likely the DEEPEST phone voice you will ever hear ( Unless James Earl Jones calls you).

What's the latest book you've read?

The Ruins by Scott Smith.

What's you're latest book and why should people read it?

My latest is called The Cleanup, a tender love story about a cop who hides a body to help a girl. It'll be available October 31. People should read it for the recipes.

What's coolest thing you did in the last 6 months?

I weant to see the Tut exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago. He wasn't there.

What are you doing this weekend?

Participating in a local lit fest, mowing the lawn, giving the kids baths. Oh! And doing an online chat with some of the contributors to Duane Swierczinski's DAMN NEAR DEAD anthology. (Yahoo g_so at 6:45 on Saturday, Sept 16, to get in on it).

What's next for Sean Doolittle?

Lit fest, lawn, bath time, chat. . .and then back to work on a still-untitled thriller involving a college professor, an ex-cop, and a shallow grave.

Geez, he was not there when I went to see him either.
What an inconsiderate guy!

I'm pals with Sean, so it's no surprise that I'd speak up for him. But I will anyway. THE CLEANUP is one damn fine novel.

There. I said it.
