PUNK’D: A Big Hole Thriller Music plays a big part in Larry Rochelle’s writing. He sometimes plays one song over and over as he types his thrillers: The Doobies, The Eagles, Benny... More > Goodman and Tanya Tucker have all been background music for his intense Palmer Morel thrillers.

Elmo’s is an often raucous greasy spoon in Carrboro near the University of North Carolina campus. Café Diem is a small, punkish, Goth coffee house in Pittsboro.< Less
