About the Author

CHRIS ORCUTT has written professionally for over 20 years as a fiction writer, journalist, scriptwriter, playwright, technical writer and speechwriter. He has also taught high school U.S. history and college writing. At Baruch College, City University of New York, Chris received the Distinguished Teaching Award, and as a newspaper reporter he received a New York Press Association award.

Chris is the author of the critically acclaimed Dakota Stevens Mystery Series. The first novel in the series, A REAL PIECE OF WORK, achieved a #1 top-rated ranking in Literary Fiction for Kindle, and #4 in Mystery. IndieReader writes of the novel, “Action, lust, danger, style and witty repartee, Orcutt’s A Real Piece of Work is a work of art.” The novel received similarly strong critical acclaim from other reviewers, as did the sequel, THE RICH ARE DIFFERENT. The third installment in the series, A TRUTH STRANGER THAN FICTION, debuts on January 1, 2015.

Chris’s short story collection, THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND, was selected by IndieReader as one of the Best Books of 2013.

In April 2014, ONE HUNDRED MILES FROM MANHATTAN, a modern pastoral novel, was published. The novel tells the story of Wellington, a fictional wealthy community in Upstate New York. ONE HUNDRED MILES was selected by IndieReader as a Best Book for 2014, and in a review of the novel Kirkus Reviews favorably compared Chris to Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Cheever.

Chris was born in Maine, and although he now lives in Upstate New York, he will always consider himself a Mainer and a New Englander first. He went to college in Boston, earning a degree in philosophy (summa cum laude, Phi Kappa Phi), and has been a lifelong Red Sox fan. His hobbies include golf, chess, movies and travel.

This is a very well-written and highly rated mystery. Although newly published for NOOK, it has been available on another platform for a year and a half, and on that website, of 158 reviews, 121 are 5-star! Just read some of those other reviews and you'll realize that this is an exceptional mystery in the noir tradition of Chandler and Robert B. Parker.

What more can I say about this book and series. The writer keeps you interested and wanting to see what happens next. The writer starts the action right in the begining and it juat keeps coming thru out the whole book.
