Two crime writers join The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when New York Times bestselling author Sara Paretsky and author and Fox News anchor John Hook join Halli at her table to discuss their new books, Peretsky’s FALLOUT and Hook’s WHO KILLED BOB CRANE, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
In her first novel for William Morrow, FALLOUT, everyone’s favorite crime novelist, Sara Paretsky is back with our favorite investigator V. I. Warshawski but in a completely new kind of mystery that will take Vic out of Chicago and into Kansas, searching for answers that time and prejudice may have long erased. The beloved mystery writer is the author of 19 previous novels and is one of only four living writers to receive both the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America and the Cartier Diamond Dagger from the Crime Writer’s Association. FALLOUT, just released is already on the New York Times Bestseller list.
Bob Crane, Hogan’s Heroes. Crane’s epithet might have read: Award-winning star of celebrated sitcom. But when the series ended, Crane’s career declined. The once beloved star took to the road, starring in plays nationwide. It was while he was on tour for the play Beginner’s Luck in June 1978, Crane was found bludgeoned to death in his Scottsdale apartment, a murder that today remains officially unsolved, Crane’s tawdry personal life, that of a sex addicted deviant who had learned the wonders of home video, and descended into a life of strip clubs, BDSM, and a closet homosexual exposed for his fans to see. A suspect, a trial, an acquittal, the mystery went on to spawn hundreds of articles, books, and movies over the past four decades. And there the story remained, yet another Hollywood cold case. Until, that is, John Hook a veteran news reporter and television anchor for over 30 years in Arizona, who has won more than a dozen Emmys for his reporting had his interest in the case rekindled, following an interview with Crane’s son Robert, Jr. It was that interview that sparked the idea to retest the blood evidence using modern DNA science. His journey to the heart of this mystery is chronicled in John Hook’s new book, WHO KILLED BOB CRANE, with a foreword by Robert Crane, Jr.
