Jan Burke and DP Lyle spend a lively hour with NYPD detective Marco Conelli and dig into his undercover work as well as his fiction writing.

BIO: A twenty year veteran detective of the NYPD, his diverse career is highlighted by his work as an undercover where he was plugged into many investigations for the Organized Crime Control Bureau. Specializing in narcotic and gun seizures, Marco was successful in removing both from New York City’s mean streets, while gathering important intelligence that led to voluminous criminal arrests.

His adaptation of disguises and the study of deduction are featured prominently in the Sherlock Holmes International Exhibition as well as Crime Writing Conferences nationwide. He has shared his insight with many best-selling novelists and is a member of Lee Lofland’s Writer’s Police Academy team.

Marco has published three novels in his Matthew Livingston Young Adult series.

He is the recipient of the 2011 Silver Falchion Award for best crime novel. The Matthew Livingston series has revitalized the hard boiled battle between good and evil seen through the abilities of three remarkable teenagers. Marco has also contributed articles to publications on the subjects of crime solving as well as literacy in America.

    This prompted me to peruse about half of The Drowning Pool – 133 pages or so – to see how many similes I could count. (I’m using the Vintage Crime Black Lizard edition from May 1996). I counted thirty four and no doubt missed a few. (REVISION 11/30/14: The number is much higher. Going back over the work a second and third time I see I missed a lot in my initial sweep.) I haven’t done the legwork, but I think some of the later books might have a slightly higher ratio. That’s a lot, but in any case I would argue that many of Macdonald’s similes are so strong that they infinitely enrich the work. Not only that – they are so strong that they put many “serious” writers of fiction to shame.
