|A native Seattleite, Leland E. Hale has rain permanently trapped between his toes. Blames his love of travel on that first airplane ride, at six months. Hitched across the country (and back) at age 21. Thinks Socrates is way cooler than Aristotle, even if he went down a little harder. Has a secret soundtrack for his latest book. Is certain that the best opening paragraph for any book ever is from "The Stranger," by Albert Camus.
His best-known work is Butcher, Baker, a true crime book about Alaska serial killer Robert Hansen. That book influenced a movie about Robert Hansen, “The Frozen Ground,” starring Nicolas Cage and John Cusack. Follow Butcher, Baker on Open Road
