Yes, that’s Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker reading Cliff Walk, my new Mulligan crime novel. Between rescuing neighbors from burning buildings, shoveling their snow, making a funny video with Governor Chris Christie, and, oh yeah, running the city, you wonder how he finds the time.

Cliff Walk, the sequel to my Edgar Award-winning first novel, Rogue Island, will be published on May 22. Both hardcover and Kindle copies can be ordered in advance here.
