About the Author

Paul Johnston was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and educated there and at Oxford. He is the author of eleven crime novels, the first of which, Body Politic, won the British Crime Writers' Association John Creasey Memorial Dagger for Best First Novel. He has also won the Sherlock Award for Best Detective Novel. He divides his time between Scotland and Greece. He is married to a Greek and has three children.


Making his Mira Books debut, award-winning British thriller writer Johnston (Body Politic) introduces Matt Wells, a crime writer who has a reputation for killing off his fictional characters in gruesome and bloody ways. But nothing has prepared Matt for seeing his fiction brought to life when an active serial killer chooses him to ghostwrite his story in real time. Communicating anonymously by email, the killer seems to know everything about Matt and his family and threatens to kill them, too, if Matt doesn't cooperate. To make matters worse, he is implicating Matt in the murders by imitating some of the most gruesome scenes from Matt's novels. Caught between the desire to contact the police and fear for his family's safety, Matt must find a way to stop the killer. Johnston has laced the plot with enough twists to keep readers guessing. The twists aren't always believable, and the murders are indeed gruesome and bloody, but fans of the genre will enjoy the white-knuckle ride. For most mystery and thriller collections.-Lisa O'Hara, Univ. of Manitoba Libs., Winnipeg Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
