Gar Anthony Haywood is the winner of both the Anthony and Shamus Awards. I just finished his 2009 stand-alone novel, Cemetery Road, and it’s terrific. Fine writing, great characters, and a riveting story.
I caught up with Gar at a recent crime fiction conference, where I snapped this photo. I plan on picking up more of his work, and maybe you should too. You can find it here.
Cliff Walk is the sequel to Rogue Island, which won both the Edgar and the Macavity awards and was a finalist for the Shamus, Barry, and Anthony awards. The new novel is receiving rave notices, including starred reviews in Booklist and Publishers Weekly. Most reviewers say Cliff Walk is even better than Rogue Island. You can find them both here.
