Whilst Burn Notice is off the air

Here in the UK, FX's run of Season 1 of Burn Notice has now finished and Season 2 is no doubt months away. But today I discovered (in Murder One) that there is a Burn Notice novel, The Fix, written by Tod Golberg that might fill the gap for a few days.

Synopsis: Covert spy Michael Westen has found himself in forced seclusion in Miami - and a little paranoid. Watched by the FBI, cut off from intelligence contacts and with his assets frozen, Westen is on ice with a warning: stay there or get ""disappeared"". Driven to find out who burned him and why, he's biding his time helping people with nowhere else to turn. People like socialite Cricket O'Connor whose husband has vanished, along with her furtune...

A second book, The End Game is due out in May.

I've actually read this and know the publishers have contracted several writers to pen novels under this house name.

This is a fun novel that does a great job of capturing the tone -- the mixture of suspense and fun -- of the television series. The author has the characters' personalities down pat. I read it about three weeks ago. I hope more of these tie-in novels are in the pipeline, because reading this one helps one get through the gaps between TV seasons.
