Meet the Author

Robert J. Randisi's 2011 novel for Perfect Crime, The End of Brooklyn, won plaudits in a Booklist starred review as "dark, brooding and thoroughly compelling." The six-volume Miles Jacoby series, reissued in 2012, brought back the prize-fighter PI in novels as infused with the harmonies of New York as a Canarsie cab driver. "If [it] moved any faster you'd have to nail it down to read it," said Elmore Leonard of the first Jacoby book. Described by Booklist as "the last of the pulp writers," Randisi has published in the western, mystery, horror, science fiction and men's adventure genres, and he has been honored by the Private Eye Writers of America with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Christine Matthews has published over sixty stories under her real name, Marthayn Pelegrimas, as well as her "Matthews" mystery pseudonym. She has appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Deadly Allies II, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Lethal Ladies, For Crime Out Loud I & II, Mickey Spillane's Vengeance Is Hers, Cat Crimes On Holiday, Till Death Do Us Part, Hollywood and Crime and Crime Square. Her stories have been chosen five times for Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg's Best of the Year books, the most recent being the 2011 edition. She is the author of four novels and the editor of several anthologies.
