About the Author:

Bill Pronzini is the author of sixty six novels, including three in collaboration with his wife, the novelist Marcia Muller, and is the creator of the popular Nameless Detective series. A six-time nominee for the Edgar Allan Poe Award (most recently for A Wasteland of Strangers). Pronzini is also the recipient of three Shamus Awards. He lives in Northern California.

From Booklist:

Three perfect crimes, each with its own special savor, but each ruled by the cool calculation of a cautious, bespectacled numbers cruncher whose brush with a femme fatale awakens his heart and his dark side. Set largely in the sultry Virgin Islands, where our embezzler and his girl abscond after the first perfect crime, Pronzini's latest deftly plotted thriller unfolds with the methodical poise of his antihero and with the mesmerizing inevitability of Greek tragedy. Like Domenic Stansberry's -Edgar-winning vThe Confession (2004), Pronzini's many stand-alones (including In an Evil Time, 2001, and Step to the Graveyard Easy, 2002) recall the lean, classic noir of Cornell Woolrich and David Goodis, and their relative dearth of grit, grime, and profanity makes them a great recommendation for a wide range of suspense readers. Pronzini's Nameless Detective series gets more attention, but his stand-alones are every bit as essential to most library crime-fiction collections. David Wright
