Rick Estrin is one of the best blues harmonica players in creation. His vocals fronting his kickin’ band, The Nightcats, are damned good, too. And he’s a brilliant songwriter to boot.  You can learn more about Rick and his music here.

I first met Rick on a blues cruise last fall, and we immediately hit it off. It turns out he’s a big crime fiction fan. We had a long bar conversation about is favorite writer, the late, great Elmore Leonard. That’s when I snapped the photo.

Liam Mulligan, the hero of my Edgar Award-winning series of crime novels, loves the blues as much as I do, listening to the likes of Buddy Guy, Tommy Castro, Jimmy Thackery and others as he cruises around New England looking for trouble. And Roomful of Blues, a band fronted by my buddy Phil Pemberton, has made an appearance in two of the novels.

A Scourge of Vipers by Bruce DeSilva is the fourth book in the series, which has received rave reviews in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Publishers Weekly, and a host of other publications. You can order any of them from independent or chain online bookstores by following this link.
