More About the Author

David Grace's first novel, "The Chocolate Spy", (under the name David Alexander) was published in hard cover 1978 and in paperback in 1980. Since then he has written fifteen more novels, almost entirely in the area of crime fiction.

Some of his favorite crime novels are "The Concrete Kiss", "Death Never Sleeps", "Death Never Lies","Shooting Crows At Dawn", "Doll's Eyes", "Easy Target", "True Faith" and "Stolen Angel".

Most of his books fall into the broad categories of police procedurals, detective stories, serial-killer novels, and action and suspense thrillers. Almost none are puzzle, whodonit stories. Rather, most of his novels are based on a strong emotional foundation, fleeing killers, disappeared children, courageous heroes and vicious criminals.

"The Concrete Kiss" earned a Kirkus Reviews "Critic's Pick"

"Set in the modern day, this straightforward, fast-paced detective novel cages a truly twisted villain."

"The reader is thrust into a page-turning, clever narrative that continually morphs from police procedural, thriller, courtroom drama, and gritty evaluation of a serial rapist and killer."

"...the relentless pace allows for little introspection."

"Grace relishes the accurate and disturbing details, providing top-quality entertainment...."

"...a relentless story."

"Well-written, engaging and sure to keep you up."

--- Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews said this about "Shooting Crows At Dawn":

"Revenge and justice burn across Texas in this gripping, grisly shootout."

His crime short stories have been published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine and he shares the story credit on The Outer Limits episode, "Joy Ride", starring Cliff Robertson. Additionally, several of his science fiction short stories have been published in Analog Magazine, some as David Grace and some under the name David Alexander.

He has also written one fantasy novel, "The Accidental Magician", originally published by Pocket Books as "Fane" (under the name David Alexander). His sole general fiction novel is "Daniel", the story of an Air Force pilot shot down over Vietnam, imprisoned in the infamous Hoa Lo prison (the Hanoi Hilton) and what happens to him when he returns home.

This convoluted but entertaining story involved almost too much psychologic and cypher information however it kept my interest. The bulk of the story held together but it came to a crashing conclusion somewhat distanced from prior events. As usual, character development was solid and detailed. Overall, I enjoyed the read and recommend the story.

Good story, but the sloppy editing ...come on, doesn't anyone have spell check? Also, NOBODY from Maryland would ever eat a crab by smashing it with a mallet. Puhleeze!

Very much enjoyed the book. I've read most of the author's books and while I wouldn't consider this book his "best", it's certainly better than average...
