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."
