In Conversation with Dennis Palumbo about HEAD WOUNDS

Mike Barson: HEAD WOUNDS is the fifth novel in your series about psychologist Daniel Rinaldi, who consults with the Pittsburgh police. Unlike some authors, you do not write a new book every year… Is that because you spend a lot of time doing research for each new entry?

So my writing time is pretty much limited to lunch hours and the weekends....

It is a fascinating story, but what makes this book special are the many layers. It has an action-packed plot intertwining guns, drugs, and money. But it also probes the subject of returning soldiers. People might think of Peter Ash as a clone of Lee Child’s character Jack Reacher, but in actuality the only similarity is that both are wandering characters. Ash’s military life and his current...
