Born into a showbiz family in Sydney, Tim Baker lived in Rome and Madrid before moving to Paris, where he wrote about jazz. He later ran consular operations in France and North Africa for the Australian embassy, liaising with international authorities on cases involving murder, kidnap, terrorism and disappearances. He has worked on film projects in India, Mexico, Brazil, Australia and China and currently lives in the South of France with his wife, their son, and two rescue animals, a dog and a cat.Review:
Praise for Fever City
"In this ambitious debut Baker gives us a bare-knuckle take on the president's murder and adds two other plotlines, connecting them solidly with the equivalent of a jab-jab-cross combination."
—The New York Times Review of Books
"Baker tells his story in three related plots set in 1960, 1963, and 2014, and he constantly moves back and forth among them. Keeping up can be a challenge, but it's one repaid by inspired writing, memorable characters and an exhilirating, all but overpowering story."
"Fever City hits you like a canonball. Baker conjures up a phantasmagorical collision of history, coincidence and conspiracy as the search for a missing boy leads to the dark recesses of the JFK assassination. A turbo-charged, beautifully written noir, Fever City is one of those mind-blowingly ambitious debuts that only comes along once in a great while."
—Stav Sherez, author of Eleven Hours
"Fever City is one of the more remarkable debut noir crime yarns in some years. If you favor the Jason Bourne novels, you will be captured by this richly entertaining book."
—Michele Zackheim, author of Last Train to Paris
