Ridley Pearson, a New York Times best-selling author, has written more than 25 crime novels and thrillers including his popular Lou Boldt series. His next one, “The Risk Agent,” will be published early next year. Remarkably, the research for one of his novels, “Undercurrents,” helped solve a real murder case.
He is also the author of a half dozen books for young readers, including his latest, “The Bridge to Neverland,” written with Dave Barry. And he is also a successful screenwriter and playwright.
I met Ridley a couple of months ago at Bouchercon, the international thriller writer’s convention, in St. Louis.
“Rogue Island,” winner of both the Edgar and the Macavity Awards, is available in trade paperback, Kindle, hardcover, and downloadable audio editions here. (Be aware, however, that the hardcover is in short supply.)
