Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I spent years reading Chechen websites, histories, political debates, and newspapers to write the background for Rip-Off. I am so White, Anglo-Saxon Protestant that Chechnya is endlessly fascinating to me. I have deep sympathy for this small country beset by invaders for centuries.
The characters I've imagined here are Chechnya's dark side. People do what they need to do to survive here.
Would we be so different?

About the Author

About the Author I grew up in northern Ontario and love its lakes and forests. I'm still a Canadian citizen, though I've lived in California a long time. California winters are just too seductive. I was an activist and organizer in Santa Monica. Getting a good murder mystery novel out of what goes on behind the scenes in grassroots politics, glitzy businesses, and developer skullduggery makes all those dreary Santa Monica city council meetings worthwhile. I live now in a village in the California mountains not that far from the edge of the Los Angeles sprawl. There's too much to do here: I'm writing crime fiction seriously, but I can't resist the SPCA, local politics, and the writing community. Life is good. If you like Rip-Off, check out my first Dave Mason novel titled No Dice.
