Editorial Reviews

John Lescroart
"Ron Franscell's THE OBITUARY is gorgeously written, complex and satisfying — a damn near perfect book."
Steve Jackson
"Franscell takes us on a journey like a leaf in a stream — flowing from scene to scene, always something new around every corner, picking up speed as it heads to its inevitable conclusion. His skills as one of the country's top narrative non-fiction writers and journalists makes his fiction realistic and edgy, while his flair for suspense and drama keeps us turning the pages, then wanting more when finished."
Michael Palmer
"A great job with a fresh, original idea. THE OBITUARY weaves elements of the best forensics writers at work today, as well as the best detective writers — a great mix. "

Meet the Author

This sequel to Ron Franscell's debut mystery, THE DEADLINE (1999), has been released as an ebook exclusive, available only to America's electronic readers. Like THE DEADLINE, it traverses a wicked landscape of meth dealers, an outlaw past, and unchecked criminal behavior in the wide open spaces of Franscell's native Wyoming. Shortly after THE OBITUARY was written, Franscell hit paydirt with a real-life crime story, THE DARKEST NIGHT (2008), a bestselling true crime book that put him on the map as one of narrative nonfiction's rising stars. he followed with DELIVERED FROM EVIL (2011), an atmospheric exploration of the lives of 10 mass-murder survivors. In a break from true-crime, he penned SOURTOE (2011), a poignantly funny account of an extraordinary road trip with his teenage son to the Yukon. Franscell also created Globe Pequot's fascinating crime-travel series, THE CRIME BUFF'S GUIDE, which pinpoints some of America's most eye-popping and historic outlaw sites with GPS precision.
