Stephen J. Cannell discusses his novel, “Three Shirt Deal.” He begins by explaining that this is another book in the series that follows his character Shane Scully. He talks about how Shane’s wife Alexa gets shot in the head and her personality is affected. Shane now has to decide whether to stay with his wife who is a completely different person, or date a new woman detective in his department. Cannell describes the book as a novel centering around ethics and justice. He discusses how he included scratch-card prizes and contests into the book. He talks about how he makes a point to read 30 to 40 novels a year from other authors. Cannell ends the interview by discussing how important it is for an author to do their own research for a book.
