Blake has worked for a corporation that specializes in kidnapping negotiations and confidential investigations, and he was also a reporter for England’s The Sun and The Daily Telegraph. He lives in London.Review:
"Stunning. A "Chinatown" for the 21st century." - Charles Cumming, "New York Times" bestselling author
""City of the Dead" is a fast-paced, blood-soaked, full-throttle descent into hell and one of the best thrillers you will read this or any other year. Daniel Blake weaves an intricate plot with the skill set of a top-tier surgeon, his dialogue rich and spot-on and his characters--both good and gut-wrenchingly evil--full-bodied and as real and fresh as morning rain. It is a novel that quite simply demands to be read. To do otherwise would be a crime." - Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of "Sleepers "and "Midnight Angels"
"Daniel Blake makes New Orleans the setting for a story that's as hot, steamy and shot through with voodoo madness as the city itself. As the victims of a ritualistic serial killer mount up, "City of the Dead" is not just a first-rate crime thriller, but also an impassioned, powerfully evocative attack on social injustice, racial prejudice and the unfettered power of the rich. Highly recommended!" - Tom Cain, author of "The Accident Man" and "Dictator"
"Hugely entertaining."- Sean Black, author of the Ryan Lock series
""City of the Dead" starts with a tsunami and ends with a hurricane, and nothing in between slows it down. A smart, scary, and relentless storm overtaking a city held hostage by greed and disaster." - Andrew Gross, "New York Times" bestselling author
"Incendiary . . . Blake's edgy, cynical take on the Katrina tragedy blends easily with Patrese's increasingly desperate quest for justice and survival." -- "Publishers Weekly"
"Blake keeps the dialogue razor sharp and the action hammer blunt while tantalizing readers with a Sherlockian thriller that turns the modern detective story on its head. If ever there was a character ripe for transition to the big screen, Franco Patrese is it." -- Rupert Wyatt, director of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
