THE BIG BOTH WAYSCriminal investigator and Writer Laureate of Alaska, John Straley visits from his Sitka home to talk about his new novel, a gripping period crime story that takes place in 1935 and pays homage to Raymond Chandler's gritty detective tales. The protagonist, Slippery Wilson, has just walked off his job at a logging camp. He meets up with Ellie Hobbes, an anarchist from the docks of Seattle who dreams of flying, and their adventure takes them north via the Inside Passage—"The Big Both Ways"—from Puget Sound to Alaska, where events turn deadly. Straley has six novels to his credit and a Shamus Award for his first novel, The Woman Who Married a Bear. (booksense)
