The Carl Webster Saga


Raylan Givens is not the only Marshal in Elmore’s literary universe.  There’s Karen Sisco, from Out of Sight, and, more significantly Carl Webster who appears in two novels, The Hot Kid and Up in Honey’s Room; and, a Carl Webster story collection, Comfort to the Enemy which will be published in trade paperback this Fall.  This collection contains two stories, Louly and Pretty Boy and Showdown at Chechotah which appear pretty much verbatim in The Hot Kid.  (The bad guy’s name is different.)  The heart of the volume is the novella for which the book is titled, Comfort to the Enemy.  This novella originally appeared in print as a 2005 New York Times Sunday Magazine serial.

The Webster Saga plays out over twenty five years, from Carl’s youth, through the 30’s hunting bad guys in Oklahoma to, in the 40s,  trying to keep Nazi POWs from escaping, and once they do, tracking them to Detroit and uncovering a Nazi spy ring.  Naturally, there are a lot of hot babes along the way.
