About the Author:

Timothy Hallinan is the Edgar and Macavity Award-nominated author of over a dozen widely praised books, including the Poke Rafferty Bangkok thrillers and the Junior Bender series. In 2010 he conceived and edited an e-book of original short stories by twenty mystery writers, Shaken: Stories for Japan, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Japanese disaster relief.

From Booklist:

Simeon Grist is a private detective with a problem: he is beginning to fear the bad guys. Trapped in a murdered man's house with a sociopathic killer, overwhelmed by a sense of his impending death, Grist turns and runs. Admittedly, he lives to fight (and triumph) another day, but the fear gnaws at him, exacerbated by the realization that he is aging without making much of a contribution to the world. Hallinan's sixth Simeon Grist novel is putatively about a serial killer who is preying on the gay community of West Hollywood, but it is also a meditation on life, on commitment, on the meaning of age in a youth-obsessed and media-saturated culture. Hallinan captures the littlest human idiosyncrasies, the most mundane familial interactions, and infuses them with a depth of meaning not usually found in the crime genre. He even manages to do so with a sly grin and a loopy sense of humor. Read his latest as a straightforward detective novel, or read it as a slightly off-kilter philosophical tome, but do yourself a favor and read it! George Needham
