Novelist Ira Berkowitz published his latest Jackson Steeg novel last year.
Steeg is a hard-boiled detective who patrols the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood
in New York but does it in a very unorthodox way. Sinners' Ball: A Jackson Steeg Novel has just
won this year's Shamus Award from the Best Paperback Original P.I. Novel. We
talk with Berkowitz about how he came to writing as a second career and the
creation of his signature character, Jackson Steeg. Rebroadcast.
