Friend Friday

How many people do you know who are members of the National Puzzlers’ League? I only know one: Eric Berlin. I met Eric at the Truman State Literature Festival in Kirksville, Missouri last fall, and fell in love with his Winston Breen series. They are a bit like Encyclopedia Brown meets Will Shortz. As a crossword puzzle fan, I’ve found the books irresistible. What I love best, however, is that the mystery is not a footnote in these stories. There’s something at stake and it’s meaningful, in each of the books.

This is Eric’s newest.
