About the Author

Even a respectable upbringing couldn't save J. Daniel Sawyer from a life of crime. As a high school hacker and serial trespasser, he often found himself the subject of unfriendly police attention. As a citizen unable to mind his own business, his frequent encounters with embezzlers, rapists, grifters, pornographers, corrupt public officials, murderers, and ice cream truck drivers around the San Francisco Bay provides him with endless source material and high doses of adrenaline. After winding up on the wrong end of a gun once too often, he brought his sordid past as firearms instructor, security consultant, and INS detention contractor to bear on his hard-boiled Clarke Lantham Mysteries. The author of thirteen books, including the award-nominated spy series The Antithesis Progression and the creepy comedy Down From Ten, he spends his down time searching the San Francisco back country for the ultimate driving road—and avoiding traffic cops.

More About the Author

While STAR WARS and STAR TREK seeded J. Daniel Sawyer's passion for the unknown, his childhood in academia gave him a deep love of history and an obsession with how the future emerges from the past.

This obsession led him through adventures in the film industry, the music industry, venture capital firms in the startup culture of Silicon Valley, and a career creating novels and audiobooks exploring the worlds that assemble themselves in his head.

His travels with bohemians, burners, historians, theologians, and inventors led him eventually to a rural exile where he uses the quiet to write, walk on the beach, and manage a production company that brings innovative stories to the ears of audiences across the world.

After the first 2 books, I really wanted Lantham to have a quiet New Year's Eve, but of course, Dan Sawyer wouldn't let that happen! I was very happy to learn a bit about Lantham's romantic past, and a little more about what makes him tick, and what his weaknesses are. Again, I also got a glimpse into the obvious interests of Sawyer (photography) which I love! Lantham is definitely gaining a place in my heart, even though I doubt he would care. Or at least, he would say he doesn't care, but secretly he would...
Thanks again for yet another wild ride! Finished this one way too quickly, make the next ones longer!

I love this series. This one is probably the best one so far. We get to see more and more into the emotional core of Clark. He's really becoming a person, more than just a character. Dan doesn't sacrifice the sexiness or the danger in this to achieve that level of character development though. I'm looking forward to book four!

This is a very emotionally intense Clarke Lantham's story. It is so realistically written that it feels like the biography of a well-loved character. It really got to me. I will take pleasure in reading it again and again.
