A Q&A with J. Carson Black

Question: What was your inspiration for the shadowy conspiratorial organization that your book The Shop is named for?

J. Carson Black: There has always been speculation--especially in thrillers--that secretive organizations have existed within the federal government--that there are black bag operations, often carried out in other countries.

Human nature being what it is, it’s easy for me to picture people in power at the highest level planning all sorts of operations. Power corrupts, and if the resources are available, I have no doubt that something like The Shop could exist. All it would take would be people who are powerful enough to put it in place, and the operations could go as far as their imaginations would let them go. Throughout history, powerful people have made enormous mistakes, and have corrupted power to their own needs. I can picture the rich and powerful--the people who can command just about anything--coming up with the most hair-brained of schemes--and getting away with it. It’s more about human nature than anything else.

Q: Do you think it's possible an organization like The Shop could really exist?

JCB: I think it can. Recently, it has come to light that the secretive clandestine operations team "JSOC", Joint Special Operations Command, has an assassination squad operating with impunity in other countries.

Q: Jolie Burke and Cyril Landry couldn’t be more different and make for a very unlikely duo. Can you tell us more about how you developed these characters? Do you have a favorite?

JCB: I like them both. I didn’t expect to like Landry, since he’s a killer, but he sort of evolved for me. For one thing, he and I both have a passion for horse racing. As I wrote my way along, he kept showing new facets of himself. He has a wife and daughter. He has a code, although it’s a bit relaxed compared to those of normal people. He was trained to be a warrior and a killer, as people in the armed services are, and these are the skills he depends on to make a living. Having been a Navy SEAL, he has extraordinary talents and abilities. And he thinks he is killing in the name of his country.

Jolie is my idea of what a homicide cop should be. She’s strong and reasonable, capable and calm. And Jolie has to deal with plenty of red tape and departmental b.s. She’s thorough and cares about what she is doing. She cares about the young man whose death is at the center of her investigation. The young man is gay, and she doesn’t want his death to go unremarked. She wants justice for him.

Review

The Shop is a hair-raising thriller from start to finish. With a complex plot and finely drawn characters, J. Carson Black draws the reader into a world where nothing is as it seems. This book is both spooky and convincing, just what a thriller should be.” ---T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author of The Jaguar

“I’m a big fan of J. Carson Black and The Shop is a truly original non-stop locomotive ride of a thriller. You won’t even think of putting this book down.” ---John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of The Hunter

"Fresh and imaginative, J. Carson Black’s THE SHOP is a riveting read and a compelling tale of character. From FBI agents to local cops, from heroes to villains, The Shop is an exciting, sweeping thriller that will linger in your mind for a long time.” ---Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Spies

"Infused with an original voice and packed with compelling characters, J. Carson Black’s The Shop is a thriller to pay attention to." ---David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of The Brotherhood of the Rose
