Rebecca Cantrell

1 - What's your latest?

Rebecca Cantrell: A NIGHT OF LONG KNIVES, second in the Hannah Vogel mystery series (after A TRACE OF SMOKE).

2 - Assuming I haven't read it, why should I?

Rebecca Cantrell: You find out what happened to Hannah and Anton and get thrust into another historical era: 1934 Germany. It's set during the purge known as The Night of the Long Knives, when Hitler's forces killed up to 1000 people, including his best friend, and examines the purge from the point of view of the wives and mothers and sisters of the men killed. Plus, it starts with a zeppelin jacking.

3 - What can you tell us about your main character that you hadn't realized until you answered the question?

Rebecca Cantrell: She's determined that no death go unnoticed, that the stories of the men who died be recorded.

4 - What's your favorite scene and why?

Rebecca Cantrell: I hate favorite questions. But there is an interrogation scene where Hannah discover that everything she thought she knew about someone is false. I love that moment.

5 - What's next?

Rebecca Cantrell: A GAME OF LIES comes out in June 2012. It's set in Berlin during the 1936 Olympics.
