It’s Masters of Suspense on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Wednesday, March 18, 3 pm ET when joining Halli at her table are two celebrated authors of the genre Dennis Lehane and James Grady.
Dennis Lehane grew up in the Dorchester section of Boston. Since his first novel, A DRINK BEFORE THE WAR, won the Shamus Award, he’s published nine more novels that have been translated into more than 30 languages and become international bestsellers: DARKNESS, TAKE MY HAND; SACRED; GONE BABY GONE; PRAYERS FOR RAIN; MYSTIC RIVER; SHUTTER ISLAND; THE GIVEN DAY; MOONLIGHT MILE; and LIVE BY NIGHT, which won the Edgar Award for Best Novel in 2013. MYSTIC RIVER, GONE BABY GONE, AND SHUTTER ISLAND have been made into award-winning films, and the film rights for LIVE BY NIGHT are under option to Warner Bros. with Ben Affleck producing, writing, directing, and starring. Lehane was a staff writer for HBO’s The Wire, and is a writer/producer on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. His latest book WORLD GONE BY dropped this week.
Montana born, author and screenwriter James Grady captivated America with his New York Times bestseller SIX DAYS OF THE CONDOR, his book-turned-into the popular film Three Days of the Condor starring Robert Redford, Faye Dunaway and Max Von Sydow, directed by the great Sydney Pollack. The movie became the father of modern spy thriller films. Besides working as a screenwriter for CBS, FX, HBO, and major studios, Grady’s journalism includes street time as a muckraker for columnist Jack Anderson after Watergate and being a cultural columnist for AOL’s PoliticsDaily.com. He’s written for The Washington Post and the New Republic. He returns to the character that became a household name with his new book LAST DAYS OF THE CONDOR.
