One associate of Marion "Suge" Knight was in custody and another a fugitive after they were charged with attempted murder of a man connected to the slaying of a member of the rap mogul's inner circle. The arrest of Terran Andrews, known as "Baby Jesus" or "Li'l Black Jesus," and the warrant for Gregory "Fleetwood" Shelton are the latest charges stemming from a series of shootings involving individuals close to Knight. Four of Knight's associates have now been charged.

A cannabis grower who courts trouble, a fictional Chinese detective who inevitably solves the puzzle and an actress whose navel stoked nationwide controversy — noir and Hollywood hold a special place in the Los Angeles mythos and were among the myriad subjects explored Sunday at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The weekend event drew throngs of booklovers young and old and provided plenty of conundrums: Could one drop in on the panel discussing Hollywood icons at 2:30 p.m. and still catch an interview with author Maxine Hong Kingston at 3 p.m.?

When first-time children's author Jane West speaks to schoolchildren about her book, "The Lonesome Pine" (Haylett Publishing, $24.95), she gets emotional. The story, about a pine tree's dream to become what it was meant to be, has meaning in her own life. She will be at Borders today to discuss and sign the book. It was while West wrote a brief biography and description of the book for a brochure that she recognized that she was the lonesome pine.

Two of Michael Connelly's relatively recent mysteries, "Trunk Music" and "Angels Flight," are clearly cover-tagged as Harry Bosch novels. That is, they feature the author's primary series character, the semi-depressed but always resourceful lone wolf LAPD detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch. No such assertion is made on the jacket of "A Darkness More Than Night" (Little, Brown, $25.95, 421 pages), though Bosch is a prominent character throughout.

It already had been a hard day's night for Valencia running back Chris Draft, and the first quarter wasn't even over yet. Most high school running backs would be satisfied with 115 yards total offense and three touchdowns in a game. But Friday night, Draft had done that with 40 seconds left in the first quarter.

Several of James Lee Burke's more recent novels about Louisiana lawman Dave Robicheaux have been examples of style over substance. This is not meant as a complaint, exactly; not when you're dealing with a stylist whose poetic way with words is stunningly effective, whether being used to describe bayou tranquillity or barroom violence.

"This is a lovely, friendly way to start the Christmas season," Stanton Avery said. All about him, under twinkly lights in the white tent at the Huntington Art Gallery in San Marino, were the members of the Society of Overseers, seated at round tables for 10. They had just finished their shrimp with ripe honeydew melon and cheese crisps, enormous chicken pot pies and cappuccino ice cream. Everyone was pleasantly happy.
