Reporter and author Neely Tucker, on June, 17, 2015 in Washington, D.C.

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. He also writes fiction that is very much of this region and of this cultural moment, exploring themes of race, mental health care, crime and history through his Sully Carter series. We talk with Tucker about his latest novel, “Only the Hunted Run.”
