’d been waiting for “The Help” to come out all summer and finally saw it last week. For those of you who read the book by Kathryn Stockett, you probably know it’s been on the New York Times best seller list for a long time, and with good reason. It’s a story that combines the civil rights movement and unlikely friendships with the bravery of a young writer who wants to make a difference in Jackson, Miss. I looked forward to reading reviews

for the film a few weeks ago, and most of them were glowing. What I found more fascinating, however, was the story of Stockett and film director Tate Taylor. A lifelong friend of Stockett, Taylor helped push her along as “The Help” was rejected from dozens of publishing companies. He read her book before it was on shelves, told her to keep trying, and began to see the movie playing in his head. From there, he began writing a script. As a director, Taylor was also struggling to make his dreams come true. In fact, his first big break into the film industry is “The Help” and to the credit of good writing and actors, it’s already a

big success. Friends are great, aren’t they? It’s amazing what we can do when they’re pushing us along and inspiring us. Sometimes they help us reach those big, grand moments in our lives, and other times they’re just there when we are struggling to break through something. My favorite memories lately are long conversations with the people I’m closest to, laughing uncontrollably at the silliest of things, and talking about big ideas outside ourselves. I hope you all have friends by you, too, for the best and worst of life’s moments. — Manette Newbold

USU showcasing science in a fun, relaxing format

Utah State University’s College of Science announces the new Science Unwrapped series “Modern Scientific Marvels” for fall 2011. The free, monthly presentations, offered in a family friendly format for all ages, focus on varied aspects and disciplines of science. The popular Friday evening gatherings, which paused for a summer break, resume Sept. 2, on USU’s Logan campus. “In our new series, we celebrate scientific discoveries that defy the imagination and spotlight the creativity of science,” says Shane Larson, Science Unwrapped committee chair and assistant professor in USU’s Physics Department. “We’ll explore how these discoveries touch our lives in marvelous ways.” Initiated by the college in February 2009, Science Unwrapped is designed to introduce science in a relaxed, entertaining manner. The presentations begin with a brief lecture, followed by handson activities and refreshments. Previous gatherings have drawn several hundred participants to each event, with attendees ranging from preschoolers to senior citizens. “We want to get people excited about science and get them asking questions,” Larson says. The fall series begins today with “Hearing Empowered: Scientific Developments in a Silent Revolution” with featured speaker Karl White, professor USU Department of Psychology and founding director, National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management. The presentation begins at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium, Room 130, of the Eccles Science Learning Center. Admission is free. For more information, call 435797-3517, visit or view the ‘Science Unwrapped at USU’ page on Facebook.

all mixed up Red Desert Ramblers to play at Crumb Brothers The Bridger Folk Music Society presents a concert with the bluegrass band Red Desert Ramblers on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 7:30 p.m. at Crumb Brothers Bakery. The Red Desert Ramblers play Bluegrass, Classic Country and Swing music. Combining 170 years of experience, they blend harmonies with smoking instrumental breaks. The Salt Lake Tribune says “when it comes to locally produced bluegrass bands, it’s hard to do better.” They have been honored by the International Bluegrass Music Association by being the first Utah Band (and Sharon Mitchell is the first hammered dulcimer player) to ever be hired for an IBMA performance. They are a regional band with national recognition and the five members hail from Salt Lake, Summit and Cache counties. Steve Hewson is best known as the host of the Rockport Dam Jam, and manager of Rockport State Park. He is from Huntington Beach, Calif., proving that country twang can come from the land of sand and surf. After going electric with the

country band “Desert Skies,” He’s been flatpicking and Steve returns to his first love playing bluegrass ever since. of acoustic music with the Joe is a Utah legend, havRed Desert Ramblers.

hammered dulcimer since 1989. In addition to Red Desert Ramblers, she also plays with the Public Domain String Band and The American Irish Duo. Past bands include Last Night’s Fun (Irish), Around the Bend and Lonesome Ridge (bluegrass). She is the roots and branches of the band adding both an old-time flavor, and a unique progressive twist to the band. Dave Bates has been a mainstay in the SLC/Summit county communities for many years. He has been a pilot and a bus driver. When he is not flying, he is a farmer in Wanship. His attention is also focused on mentoring teenagers and youth so they become proficient musicians. Crumb Brothers Bakery is located at 291 S. 300 West in Logan.

Returning to the USU Ballroom, the popular annual Big Band Celebrate America Show, “In The Miller Mood,” takes the audience for a musical journey on the Chattanooga Choo Choo to the 1940s, when Glenn Miller and other big bands made a significant contribution to the morale of the country through music. The nation was in the midst of World War II, patriotism soared and the airwaves were filled with tunes that Americans loved to dance and listen to. The first stop in the show is the glamorous Hotel Pennsylvania (where Glenn Miller immortalized with his hit tune, “Pennsylvania 6-5000”). With following stops in Chicago, St. Louis, then back to New York City, the show captures the timeless sound and style of the big band era with songs including “Paper Doll,” “Orange Colored Sky,” “Why

Do They Call a Private a Private,” “He’s 1-A in the Army and He’s A-1 in My

Heart,” “What Do You Do in the Infantry,” and many more. The songs feature the

lush harmonies of the Stardust Singers, the excitement of the Stardust Dancers and

the music of the Larry Smith Orchestra. Drummer Ned Smith returns for his fourth year with the show. Ned is the son of band leader Larry Smith. He’s been a professional drummer for many years on the West Coast. His style is reminiscent of Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa and he’s guaranteed to liven up the house with his rendition of “Sing Sing Sing!” The evening also includes a grand buffet dinner. “In The Miller Mood” plays nightly from Sept. 6-10 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available with or without dinner and range from $8 to $58. All shows (except the Sept. 6) feature entertainment after the show with dancing. Tickets available at or call Maceys Foods in Logan, 435-753-3301 ext. 0. For more information call 435753-1551.

Get active with your dog at PoochPalooza

On Saturday, Sept. 10, dog lovers of Cache Valley are invited to attend Zoomdog Agility and Sports Club’s first annual PoochPalooza. This free event will be held at the Cache County Fairgrounds from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The PoochPalooza is geared toward building up the Cache canine community and encourages people to spend more time with family, including the dog, and get together with other local dog owners. The day’s schedule will include low-key agility trials, showcasing many of Zoomdog’s handler/canine teams. Lee Tansock and her dog, Bailey, have been taking agility classes since last summer. Tansock explains that . she is looking forward to the PoochPalooza because, “I am

excited to be able to handle Bailey in a competitive environment and to challenge both myself and my dog in different ways.” Following the trials, local groups will give health and training presentations. Attendees with dogs are welcome to try out some of the agility equipment. Booths and dog-themed carnival games for children (and the young at heart) will be available throughout the morning. Dogs and owners are invited to participate in fun contests such as a look-a-like contest and best trick contest. Zoomdog Agility and Sports Club is an organization that strives to build the bond between people and their dogs. Formerly Logan Dog Agility, established in 2009, Zoomdog offers a vari-

ety of agility classes, provides opportunities for handlers to join their club and promotes friendships between people who love dogs. Zoomdog also offers delectable treats for canines. Zoom-

dog Gourmet is a way for the group to not only raise funds for their club, but to also offer local residents healthy treat varieties for their pooches. Their treats are made with human-grade ingredients and

no preservatives are added. Zoomdog Gourmet offers many fun flavors, such as The Dog’s Revenge, barbeque flavored men, and Double Carob Brownies. Lisa Peterson and her dog Howser love buying Zoomdog Gourmet treats. “Howser’s favorite are definitely the Cheesy Chicken Chews!” says Peterson. The highlight, however, of Zoomdog Gourmet is their mini cupcake line, frosted and handmade especially for man’s best friend. Zoomdog Gourmet’s tasty treats will be available at the PoochPalooza. For more information about upcoming events, how to sign up for agility classes, and the PoochPalooza, please visit Zoomdog Agility and Sports Club’s website at or call 801-7101046.

Celebrate America boasts a toe-tapping show

Page 6 - The Herald Journal, Logan, Utah, Friday, September 2, 2011

movies A brawny B-action picture with a gorgeous, graceful woman wreaking havoc at its center: Yup, this is a Luc Besson movie. The director of “La Femme Nikita” and “The Fifth Element” serves as co-writer and producer here, but this is very much a spinoff of his brand, a continuation of the kind of stereotype- and gravity-defying characters he’s made his name on. “Colombiana” feels more hammy and muscular, though — but knowingly so, and that’s what makes it solid, late-summer escapist fun. Zoe Saldana stars as Cataleya, who saw her parents killed in front of her when she was a 9-year-old schoolgirl living in the slums of Bogota. Fifteen years later, with the help of her Uncle Emilio (Cliff Curtis), she’s transformed herself into a highly efficient professional assassin in the United States, but she still seeks revenge against her parents’ killers. Over-the-top bad guys spew generically menacing lines and hot women parade around in bikinis and lingerie: It’s all big and silly. But Saldana manages to earn our sympathy, as the script (which Besson wrote with frequent collaborator Robert Mark Kamen) allows her to convey a surprising amount of emotion and inner conflict. 108 minutes.

Reviews by The Associated Press

★★ ‘Colombiana’

Director // Olivier Megaton Starring // Zoe Saldana, Michael Vartan and Callum Blue Rated // PG-13 for violence, disturbing images, intense sequences of action, sexuality and brief strong language

★ ‘One Day’

Director // Lone Scherfig Starring // Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess Rated // PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity, language, some violence and substance abuse Maybe it was all more resonant, more poignant on the page: the many highs and lows and major life shifts that occur during the decades-spanning friendship/romance between Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess). But here they feel so cursory and rushed, it’s as if we’re watching a filmed version of the CliffsNotes of David Nicholls’ best-seller. The central conceit is this: Em and Dex meet after a long night of post-college graduation partying July 15, 1988. “One Day” keeps coming back to that one day, year after year, and checks in with them as they date other people, forge careers, share awkward dinners and basically wait around until the inevitable July 15 when they’ll be together. Big, weighty moments are thrust before us — and these should be serious hanky moments — but since the emotional groundwork hasn’t been laid for them, we’re not moved. We’re just not there yet. Emma and Dexter feel more like ideas, types, rather than fleshed-out characters, so the supporting players who supposedly play crucial roles for them barely register either. It’s a handsome misfire, though. And it’s all the more curious coming from Danish director Lone Scherfig, whose last film was the excellent “An Education” (2009), which was nominated for three Academy Awards including best picture. 104 minutes.

A class act like this is rare enough in Hollywood. Coming at the tail end of summer blockbuster season, it’s almost unheard of. It’s the sort of film that studios typically save for the holiday prestige season in November or December, when Academy Awards voters start thinking ahead to the films they want to anoint. Come awards time, many of them likely will be thinking of “The Help,” whose remarkable ensemble of women offers enough great performances to practically fill the actress categories at the Oscars. From its roots as a collaboration between lifelong friends Kathryn Stockett, who wrote the best-selling novel, and Tate Taylor, the film’s writerdirector, through the pitch-perfect casting of Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and their co-stars, “The Help” simply seems to be blessed. It’s hard to imagine a better movie coming out of the screen adaptation of Stockett’s tale of friendship and common cause among black maids and an aspiring white writer in Jackson, Miss., in 1963. 146 minutes.

Paul Rudd hops from one sofa to another to another as the title character, and that’s sort of what the film itself does, too. Rudd stars as an amiable, ambling dude named Ned who has no real goals in life; what he does have is a guilelessness that consistently gets him into trouble, both with his family and with the law. He has a knack for always saying or doing the wrong thing, even though he always means well. Director Jesse Peretz, working from a script written by his sister, Evgenia Peretz, and her husband, David Schisgall, follows him as he bumbles his way from one situation to the next with no great momentum or sense of character evolution. Ned grows increasingly irritating to his hippie farmer exgirlfriend (Kathryn Hahn), the three sisters he mooches off

★ ‘Our Idiot Brother’

Director // Jesse Peretz Starring // Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Emily Mortimer and Zooey Deschanel Rated // R for sexual content including nudity, and for language throughout of (Emily Mortimer, Elizabeth Banks and Zooey Deschanel) and to us. But then supposedly once they’ve all shunned him for causing so much inadvertent damage, they take him back because they realize what a positive influence he is in their lives. It makes no sense — there’s a gap of logic and emotion that’s hard to overcome. 90 minutes.

★★★ ‘The Help’

Director // Tate Taylor Starring // Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain Rated // PG-13 for thematic material.

and emotions, truth and regret. The film’s gray areas are so intriguing that you’ll wish it didn’t rely on a facile love triangle to create further tension — and add yet another layer of history — between these three characters. The needless romance further bogs down the third act, which grows unfortunately messy as it tries to tie up various loose ends and satisfy the audience’s need for justice. Still, the performances are consistently strong, especially from Chastain in a far more grounded, muscular role than we’ve seen from her this year in “The Tree of Life” and “The Help.” Meanwhile, Mirren can do tough-butvulnerable in her sleep; build-up of watching these two are the most them function in high plausible duo of the three. gear.

Classy, solid and wellacted, “The Debt” is a rare bit of meaty, intelligent filmmaking during the ordinarily dreary final days of summer. With a cast that includes Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson and a tremendous Jessica Chastain, led by “Shakespeare in Love” director John Madden, it seems it would be hard to go wrong. Matthew Vaughn, the director of “Layer Cake” and “Kick-Ass,” co-wrote the script. It’s smart and tense but also frustrating; it almost feels too safe, too conservative and reserved in the way it hits its notes.

Magic in the

pool hall alk into Legends Billiard Club in Nibley, and you just might be treated to an impromptu magic show. Owner Allan Cornia, who opened the establishment a month ago, has been studying the art of magic since his childhood. On Monday night, he gave a few of the club goers a 45-minute show, wowing the onlookers with several tricks. “There are numerous celebrities and statesmen that I’ve performed for,” he said. The list is long: Steve Martin, Chuck Norris, James Garner, Tony Curtis and General Norman Schwarzkopf, among others. Cornia, who grew up in Logan, is also a member of Hollywood’s Magic Castle — a very exclusive private club for magicians. He also has a passion for pool and wants to share it with those who visit the club. “I was in California, and I was playing these major billiard tournaments and doing magic professionally,” Cornia said. “I just really enjoyed the atmosphere of professional pool and professional magic. When I came back up here, I just really wanted to have that type of atmosphere. And that’s where Legends Billiard Club evolved from.” There are seven 3 1/2 by 7 foot pool tables at Legends, as well as an antique 4 1/2 by 9 foot table, reserved for special events and tournaments. Playing pool is free every day from 3 to 7

p.m. and $6 per hour outside of that window. Craig Smith, a Logan resident, said he’s thrilled that the club has come to the area. “It’s offering something that hasn’t been available for couples that want to go out and play a game of pool in a new atmosphere with nice, professional tables,” Smith said. Other activities at Legends include dart leagues and dance instruction. “With dancing, I’ve come to find out that there’s a very, very large community of dancers here in Cache Valley — whether it be American, Latin, salsa — that virtually end up going to Salt Lake every weekend to dance,” said Cornia. Legends, which is open seven days a week and has a bar area, has something going on virtually every night. For example, Monday nights feature dart leagues, with dance instruction on Wednesday evenings. The Cache Valley Pool League will play on Thursday nights, followed by dancing. There is also recorded music and karaoke on Friday nights and live bands on Saturday evenings. Cornia believes the club offers a unique entertainment experience for Cache Valley residents. “I wanted to provide numerous activities for people to enjoy, where they may not have that variety elsewhere,” he added. “What I wanted to create is a place for people to come and ... play pool, socialize, dance, darts, get together with friends — with a social atmosphere that’s pleasing and comfortable.”

Learn about African prehistory at Museum of Anthropology Two visiting scholars are guests at the next “Saturdays at the Museum” activity presented by the Museum of Anthropology at Utah State University. Kimball Banks of Metcalf Archaeology, Bismark, N.D. , and Signe Snortland, environmental specialist and archaeologist with the Bureau of Reclamation in North Dakota, are the featured presentation Saturday, Sept. 3. The pair will discuss the investigations of the prehistory and paleoenvironments of northeast Africa that took place in the early 1960s under a program known as the Combined Prehistoric Expedition (CPE), one of the oldest on-going archaeological programs in history. This international consortium of scientists started as a salvage program mitigating impacts to pre-

historic sites from construction of the Aswan High Dam on the Nile River. While most art historians and archaeologists focus on Pharaonic Egypt, the CPE makes major contributions to the understanding of the preceding Paleolithic and Neolithic cultures in Egypt and Sudan and past environmental settings. The guest presentation begins at 1 p.m. at the museum. Community members, as well as Utah State students, can visit the museum during its operating hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about this event, call museum staff at (435) 797-7545 or visit the museum website (

Your Stuff “When Walking Your Dog Just Walk Your Dog” By Adrian Korpel My dog has Buddha nature and savors each dog-cookie minute of her yippety doodah dog-nose life. She sniffs every peebush happy, a mutt in a merry dog skin, a fun dog in the sunup of this mother-of-pearl morning, as we dreamdawdle our way In the slant rays of dawn. White tail alert! And off the trail she veers to stalk a desert dumbunny, dumbasking in the sun. Now she is a peerless panther, a stealth cat, the queen of cunning. When she crouches for her power leap, her puny prey wakes up, and zigzags for life, hunted heartily by my tallyho hound. Later, far ahead of me, she’s back on the trail again, bunny gone, but bunny dreams alive. When I call ‘come,’ she looks around twirls her wavetail, ups her foxy ears, then goes on walking, just walks her dog.

“Retreating from the Road Less Traveled” By Brian Steiner I followed him into the woods his tracks were sure and steady except at the point of divergence I also paused for a moment and made my decision yet neither the path less traveled nor the road of choice would I discover today but instead turned and stumbled home frightened with both pathways and unfortunately that has made all the difference

Nashville Tribute Band performing at USU Drawing large, enthusiastic crowds throughout the Western states with the release of their new CD “The Work: A Nashville Tribute to the Missionaries,” the Nashville Tribute Band announced it will extend their concert tour and perform Sept. 9 at Utah State University’s Kent Concert Hall. The announcement comes in response to the packed concert venues the band has performed at since the premier of “The Work” on Aug. 4 at the Sandy Amphitheater. The concert at USU’s Kent Concert Hall will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $11 for adults, $9 for students and $9.50 for groups, and can be purchased by going to the NTB website: Jeremy Barron, director of Artist Management and Event Productions for R Legacy Entertainment, distributor of The Work, said in all of his years of music promotion nationally and internationally, “I’ve never seen anything sell so well. The shows have been well-attended and wellreceived. By popular demand, we’re extending NTB’s

concert tour so students at Utah State University and music fans throughout Cache County can experience this incredible sound.” Lead singer and songwriter Jason Deere has made a career out of writing hit songs and developing hit artists. His song, “Love’s

Lookin’ Good on You,” cowritten with Matt Lopez of Due West for Lady Antebellum, went platinum. He’s also penned memorable tunes for Little Big Town, Leann Rimes, Jessica Simpson, Jim Brickman, SHeDAISY, Be Be Winans, Natalie Grant, Point of Grace, Wanessa

Camargo, Leonardo, Luiza Possi, The Wreckers, James Wesley, Stealing Angels and Due West, and has a lengthy list of film and television credits. Deere assembled an all-star cast of musicians to create NTB including Dan Truman, Grammy-nominated piano

player for Diamond Rio; Emmy-nominated guitarist/ composer Ron Saltmarsh; Katherine Nelson, known for her starring role as Emma in the film “Emma Smith: My Story,” as well as the hot country trio Due West. NTB’s latest musical compilation completes a trilogy of CDs dedicated to significant moments in the LDS Church’s past — from its beginnings to the epic handcart pioneer exodus to Salt Lake. “The Work: A Nashville Tribute to the Missionaries” brings to light the decades-old practice of men and women traveling around the globe to share the message of the church’s doctrine as missionaries. Of his latest CD, Deere said, “I want the world to know what a culture of sending missionaries out into the world, two by two, means to us as a people. Most of these missionaries are 19-20 years old. They are forgetting themselves, learning to love other people and devoting their daily lives to prayer and scripture study. It is a remarkable time in a young person’s life and I felt compelled to

Prolific American poet donates collection to USU In the basement of the Merrill-Cazier Library nearly 80 linear feet of untouched correspondence, literary manuscripts, diaries and small press and first edition books of poetry lie waiting for someone to explore their contents and write their history. The collection comprises the works and communications of Charles Potts, a prolific poet from Idaho, with ties to some of the great American writers such as Charles Bukowski and lesser known poets like Charles Foster. Potts donated his collection to Utah State University in fall 2010, aiming to open

the archives to humanities researchers. He will visit USU Sept. 7-9. While on campus, he will present two readings,

co-teach a creative writing course and provide insight about the material to students and faculty. The collection includes broadsides, correspondence, manuscripts, diaries and thousands of literary magazines and books Potts amassed from nearly five decades of writing and publishing poets. For Brad Cole, associate dean for Special Collections and Archives at USU, it adds a regional perspective to the university’s section of Beat poetry as well as a primary source material. “It highlights and augments the collection we have,” he said. “Hopefully, it will attract

scholars to USU. Potts really worked hard to publish a lot of small, unknown poets.” Potts grew up raising Appaloosa horses on a ranch in Mackay and thought he would write novels after reading Fyodor Dostoyevsky. However, while attending Idaho State University he became a protégé of the celebrated American poet Ed Dorn, whose work convinced Potts he no longer wanted to write books. “The brevity, the succinctness and the depth that you can get with poetry — that really appealed to me,” Potts said. “I really feel that if someone has something to say, they should

just spit it out.” And for nearly 50 years he has. Potts’ poetry was first published in the periodical “Wild Dog” in 1963 and he has continued to publish poetry ever since. Potts started the Walla Wall Poetry Party and The Temple School of Poetry where he mentored up-andcoming poets and showcased their work. Potts will read Wednesday, Sept. 7, in room 101 of the Merrill-Cazier Library at 2 p.m., and Thursday at 7 p.m. at Helicon West held at the True Aggie Café , 117 N. Main, downtown Logan.

New Pelecanos novel is a war thriller that works By Bruce DeSilva For The Associated Press

At Thrillerfest, a crime writers conference held in Manhattan this summer, dozens of literary agents spent half a day listening to would-be authors pitch their ideas for books about grizzled Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans who return to the states to fight crime. To nearly all of them, the agents said thanks, but no thanks. Agents attributed the flood of similar ideas to the success of Lee Child’s novels about Jack Reacher, a war veteran who roams the country righting wrongs and then vanishing like a modern-day Lone Ranger. But what seems like an overused idea can turn into something special in the hands of a master. George Pelecanos, proclaimed our greatest

crime novelist by Stephen King, has proved it with “The Cut,” the first book in his new series featuring Spero Lucas, a 29-year-old Iraq war veteran who returns to his native Washington, D.C., to straddle both sides of the law. Spero, the adopted child of a Greek-American couple, loves his mother and his black adopted brother, and is grieving for his father, who recently passed away. Spero is tough and courageous, and he has a big heart, but like many veterans, he’s having trouble figuring out how to find a place in civilian life. He’s working as an investigator for a Washington criminal lawyer, a job that figures in a compelling subplot. But he also freelances, recovering stolen property in return for a 40 percent cut. And he’ll work for anyone who agrees to pay. One who does is Antwan

Hawkins, a jailed, big-time drug dealer who is still running his illegal business from behind prison walls. Hawkins came up with a clever way to receive drug shipments from his supplier: He has packages of marijuana shipped to houses of people who are on vacation

‘Plugged’ is funny and suspenseful By Jeff Ayers For The Associated Press

Eoin Colfer, primarily known for his children’s books featuring Artemis Fowl, shows he can write a terrific crime novel for adults with “Plugged.” Daniel McEvoy works as a bouncer for a strip club and has feelings for a woman who works there. He’s brash and sarcastic, but his size and military background essentially let him get away with behavior that would land other people in jail. While visiting a seedy doctor for hair plugs, McEvoy is forced to kill a man with mob ties. Shortly after thinking he’s covered his tracks, McEvoy

discovers the woman he likes has been murdered. The police believe he’s guilty of her murder and the boss of the man

he actually killed begins to pressure him to confess to that crime. With the help of some not-so-nice colleagues and a ghost, he tries to get his life back to normal. “Plugged” is that rare book that mixes terrific suspense with laugh-out-loud humor. Colfer wrote a novel “And Another Thing ...” set in the universe of Douglas Adams’ “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.” Imagine that strong sense of British comedy with sarcasm and terrible jokes flying constantly, but with bullets instead of spaceships. McEvoy and his attitude will appeal to fans of both the crime novels of Elmore Leonard and the wacky characters prevalent in the novels of Carl Hiaasen.

or away on business. A few of his cronies drop by the houses on the days of delivery and snatch the packages from the front steps. It was working fine until someone else caught on and swiped a couple of valuable packages. So Hawkins hires Spero to steal them back. But what seemed to be a simple recovery job quickly turns sour as Spero’s digging uncovers a double-dealing conspiracy. Soon, a pair of street dealers turn up dead, and Spero comes perilously close to joining them. Before it’s over, he has to turn killer in an effort to save an innocent boy. The story is beautifully

told in the lean, muscular prose style that readers of the author’s other fine novels, including “The Way Home” (2009) and “The Night Gardner” (2006), have come to expect. “The Cut” is the 17th novel by Pelecanos, who has also written for two acclaimed HBO television series, “The Wire” and “Treme.” In recent years, he has written mostly standalone crime novels, each with a unique protagonist, but he says he’s not done exploring the possibilities of this new character. Readers are sure to be eager for the next Spero Lucas adventure.
