Robert Crais Interview on The Artist's Craft
Crais is one of my favorite authors. I 'discovered' him when I read a review of his book, L. A. Requiem about 10 years or so ago, and promptly found all his older books and read them. I recommend you start with The Monkey's Raincoat, which was his first novel and was originally published as a paperback original. I had the pleasure of meeting RC at a book signing and reading in New Orleans just a few months before the hurricane in 2005.
