"Simultaneously brutal, bloody and beatific, this is crime fiction done right. A relentlessly paced, unpredictable page-turner powered by well-developed characters." Kirkus Reviews
"From bloody brutality to pure, poetic scenery and unfettered love, Desolation Run defies genre and dashes straight through the common thriller to deliver an impacting, unorthodox story of freedom and redemption." Awesome Indies Reviews
"James Snyder is a great story teller. Look out for his works." Richard Bunning
"There's not much I can say to add to the other 5-star reviews here already. I loved it. You have to read it." Rob Lopez
About the Author
James Snyder was born in Memphis, Tennessee and fell in love with the cadence and sound of storytelling as a child, listening to the meandering tales of his Southern grandmothers and great aunts. While still a child, his family moved to Napa Valley, California where he attended middle and high school, and began taking writing classes at the local college. He left after a year to join the military, and was a soldier with a tactical mobile operations unit in Germany when, pulling a Harz mountaintop guard duty one night during a snowstorm, he had the chance encounter with another soldier that ultimately became the genesis for his debut military thriller AMERICAN WARRIOR.
He is also the author of the suspense thriller DESOLATION RUN, the literary coming-of-age THE BEAUTIFUL-UGLY, the short story collection TALES OF THE LATE TWENTIETH CENTURY, and other literary works.
"Berlin Diaries" is his blog at JamesSnyder.net where he occasionally ponders the realpolitik of his, and other, writings.
He currently lives in Texas.
