William Rabkin's hilarious CALL OF THE MILD, his latest original PSYCH novel, is now out at bookstores everywhere. Here's the skinny:
Shawn Spencer has convinced everyone he's psychic.
Now, he's either going to clean up-or be found out…
Shawn Spencer has always hated the wilderness-by which he means anything outside the delivery radius of his favorite pizza place. But Psych has been hired to solve a baffling case of industrial espionage, and the only way to catch the spy is to join their client's bonding retreat-a grueling seven day backpacking mountain trek.
But when one of the campers turns up with a bullet in the head, Shawn and Gus soon realize that sheer cliffs, rampaging bears, and freeze- dried pineapple aren't the greatest threats they face…
How can you resist? Go out and buy it now.

This sounds great!!! I’m going to run out and buy it right now!!!
I would have bought a copy already, but my local Borders didn’t have it in yet. Boo!
I picked up the book 2 days ago. And I’ve got to say, more happens in the first 53 pages of this book than in the first 53 pages of the previous 2 Psych books. I attempted to leave an “atta boy” for Bill Rabkin at his blog site, but it’s become a ghost town – no entries since July 22! BTW – I didn’t know that you and Bill had written a CBS pilot based on Ella Clah. I’ve read the Thurlos other two series (Sister Agatha and Lee Nez) and I wondered that now with the interest in vampires and werewolves, that you and Bill might pursue a Lee Nez MOW. Or are you and Bill “She Werewolfed” out?
As a recently-converted “Psych” fan, I’ve been eager to give these books a try — and the cover description for this one, I can’t resist. It generally burns my soul to read a series out of order, but I don’t want to race through the first two just to get to this one, so I’ve decided to start here. I’m only a couple of chapters in, but, like the “Monk” books, the characters are spot-on, and so far I’m quite happy.
I wish more tie-in books were authored by writers who had also written episodes for the show, too. There might be some decent modern “Doctor Who” tie-ins if they took this tact … (*sighs*)
