"Joan Mellen is a rare breed—a biographer who writes with the passion of a truth-seeker, the skill of an artisan, and the attention to detail of a well-trained scholar-researcher. She digs deep and she cares. I look forward to reading every book she writes." —Richard Layman, author, Shadow Man: The Life of Dashiell Hammett, on A Farewell to Justice
