Dan Pollock's Lair of the Fox was hailed as a "blockbuster thriller" (New York Daily News); the Denver Post praised Duel of Assassins as "an exciting read (that) races to an explosively exciting conclusion." Now Pollock brings us his latest novel of sweeping action and suspense, set in the exotic, forbidding reaches of the Venezuelan wilderness.
Set in a world both ravishing and filled with peril from nature and man, Orinoco is a novel of lively adventure and romance, ending in a high-voltage chase with a masterfully ironic and satisfying twist.
Dan Pollock was born in New York City to a family of writers and grew up in Laguna Beach, California. A former syndicate editor with the Los Angeles Times, Pollock is the author of three thriller novels in addition to Orinoco (originally published as Pursuit Into Darkness)--Lair of the Fox, Duel of Assassins and The Running Boy--and a specially commissioned "logistics" thriller, Precipice.
With his wife, Constance, he has edited and published three literary, inspirational volumes: The Book of Uncommon Prayer; Gospel: The Life of Jesus as Told by the World's Great Writers; and Visions of the Afterlife: Heaven, Hell and Revelation as Viewed by the World's Great Writers.
The Pollocks live in Southern California with their two children.
