Reed Farrel Coleman is a New York Times bestselling author that has been called a "hard-boiled poet" by NPR's Maureen Corrigan and the "noir poet laureate" in The Huffington Post. He has published more than twenty-five previous novels, including novels in Robert Parker’s Jesse Stone series, the critically acclaimed Moe Prager series, and the Gus Murphy series. A three-time winner of the Shamus Award, he has also won the Anthony, Macavity, Barry, and Audie Awards. He lives with his family on Long Island.
"This sixth Moe Prager novel is pretty much note-perfect. Coleman's take on the art world as a den of iniquity is priceless, as is Moe himself--intelligent, street smart, and tough, especially for a sixtysomething. He's also sophisticated, despite seeing himself as a 'poor schmuck from Brooklyn.' He's a mensch, and his bone-deep world weariness and mordant sense of humor should enthrall lovers of old-school, touch-talking, loner private eyes (think Loren D. Estleman's Amos Walker)." --Booklist, starred review
