One of Washington’s toughest reporters – a seasoned foreign correspondent who now gets in and out of jams while covering local D.C. – is the fictional brainchild of one of D.C.’s most versatile reporters, Neely Tucker. At the Washington Post, Tucker has worked a lot of beats, writing everything from presidential profiles to poignant glimpses into lives touched by crime.

We talk with Tucker about his latest novel, “Only the Hunted Run.”
