Doc was one of the first veteran crime writers to befriend me when, as an aspiring novelist, I began showing up at crime writing conferences, and ever since he’s been a warm and supportive friend. And I’m grateful to him for always including me on the faculty of Craft-fest, the training portion of the annual Thrillerfest conference in Manhattan.
I took the photo at the latest Thrillerfest in July.

Providence Rag is the third novel in my Edgar Award-winning series featuring Liam Mulligan, an investigative reporter at a dying Providence, R.I., newspaper. I hope you will purchase a copy from an independent bookstore; you can locate one in your area here. If that’s not convenient for you, the novel, as well as the first two books in the series, are available in print, e-book, and audio editions here.
