Highlight of the night in terms of police action was when the police apprehended a guy who had reportedly threatened people in an Old Port bar with a knife. He was arrested a few blocks away at gun- and K-9-point (is that a word?).
Highlight of the night in terms of writer action was sitting in a parking lot at 10 at night–cruisers pulled up side by side–while a couple of officers walked through the tentative opener for my next book (Blake No. 3). Good news: they didn’t laugh at my original idea. Even better news: they came up with ways to make it a lot better.
Young officer Brandon Blake is in good company.
