Even a respectable upbringing couldn't save J. Daniel Sawyer from a life of crime. As a high school hacker and serial trespasser, he often found himself the subject of unfriendly police attention. As a citizen unable to mind his own business, his frequent encounters with embezzlers, rapists, grifters, pornographers, corrupt public officials, murderers, and ice cream truck drivers around the San Francisco Bay provides him with endless source material and high doses of adrenaline.
After winding up on the wrong end of a gun once too often, he brought his sordid past as firearms instructor, security consultant, and INS detention contractor to bear on his hard-boiled Clarke Lantham Mysteries.
The author of thirteen books, including the award-nominated spy series The Antithesis Progression and the creepy comedy Down From Ten, he spends his down time searching the San Francisco back country for the ultimate driving road-and avoiding traffic cops.
