About the Author

John Verdon is the author of the Dave Gurney series of thrillers, international bestsellers published in more than two dozen languages -- Think of a Number, Shut Your Eyes Tight, Let the Devil Sleep, Peter Pan Must Die, and Wolf Lake. Before becoming a crime fiction writer, John had two previous careers -- as an advertising creative director and a custom furniture maker. He currently lives with his wife Naomi in the rural mountains of upstate New York -- raising chickens, tending the garden, mowing the fields, and devising the intricate plots of the Gurney novels.

Reviews

"Fans of classic fair play who appreciate well-developed characterizations in their whodunits will relish Verdon's richly atmospheric fifth mystery featuring retired NYPD homicide detective Dave Gurney (after 2014's Peter Pan Must Die...) Verdon couples the continued nuanced exploration of Dave and Madeleine's relationship with one of his most sophisticated solutions yet."--Publishers Weekly, Starred and Boxed Review "At the center of the natural and emotional turbulence, Gurney remains steady, methodical, and scientific as he pulls together the case's disparate strands... [T]he notion of shared nightmares holds the reader start to finish."--Kirkus "Wolf Lake is a perfect thriller, one that revels in the darkest of places, in worlds both real and imagined. There are monsters in this book, certainly, but they live and breathe and look like us, which makes them all the more frightening. A complex, engrossing mystery, Wolf Lake will challenge what you believe to be true about the banality of evil and the lengths men will go to for the things they most want to hide." --Tod Goldberg, author of Gangsterland, Finalist for the Hammett Prize "Why isn't John Verdon huge? Like household name huge?... This is a storytelling romp. Verdon has a very distinctive style, one that is slightly offbeat without being off-putting... Verdon is an author deserving of your time and attention; if you love mysteries, you owe it to yourself to read Wolf Lake."--Bookreporter.com "This novel has a hook worthy of any King creation: Four unrelated individuals in different parts of the country have the same nightmare, then appear to commit suicide. How's that for attention grabbing?"--Bookbub
