The Gun Seller is a novel written by Hugh Laurie. The cover describes him as “star of the FOX-TV series House.” Those who have watched the show would recognize Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House, the disgruntled, dysfunctional, yet brilliant, man that the other characters both loved and hated.
I couldn’t help but “hear” the voice of Dr. House in the words and thoughts of Thomas Lang, the main character of The Gun Seller. I’m not sure that I would automatically cast the role that way, so to speak, if the cover didn’t connect House to this book by Laurie. The book has nothing at all to do with the show.
