Product Description

"For a mystery, Dead Run will be hard to beat"—The New York Times Book Review

On the way to his new job, traveling by ship along the Malaysian coast from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Dan Connell finds himself entangled in peril.

Aboard a beat up old ship, in the slums outside of exotic Kuala Lumpur, at a rubber plantation, and deep in the jungle, Connell discovers he's being pursued by ruthless killers—but he can't figure out why.

Praise for Bill Pronzini

"Pronzini makes people and events so real that you're living those explosive days of terror."
—Robert Ludlum

"Once in a crocodile's age you come across a writer whose work you instinctively like... I've found one—Bill Pronzini. Buy him, read him, and relax."
—Los Angeles Times

"A skilled writer working at the top of his ability."
—Denver Post

"Pronzini delivers breathtaking suspense"
—San Francisco Examiner

"His novels are packed with adventure, fresh characterization, and minute-by-minute suspense."
—Chicago Tribune

"Pronzini is the master of the shivery, spine-tingling it-could-happen suspense story."
—Publishers Weekly

"Pronzini is a pro."
—The New York Times


About the Author

Bill Pronzini is simply one of the masters. He seems to have taken a crack at just about every genre: mysteries, noirish thrillers, historicals, locked-room mysteries, adventure novels, spy capers, men's action, westerns, and, of course, his masterful, long-running Nameless private detective series, now entering its fourth decade, with no signs of creative flagging. He's also ghosted several Brett Halliday short stories as Michael Shayne for Mike Shayne's Mystery Magazine, and has managed to collaborate with such fellow writers as John Lutz, Barry Wahlberg, Collin Wilcox and Marcia Muller. Still, if he never ventured into fiction writing, his non-fiction work, as both writer and editor, would still earn him a place in the P.I. genre's Hall of Fame. Besides his two tributes to some of the very worst in crime fiction (what he calls "alternative classics"), Gun in Cheek and Son of Gun in Cheek, and one on western fiction (entitled Six Gun in Cheek, naturally), he's the co-author (with Marcia Muller) of 1001 Midnights. The Mystery Writers of America have nominated him for Edgar Awards several times and his work has been translated into numerous languages and he's published in almost thirty countries. He was the very first president of the Private Eye Writers of America, and he's received three Shamus Awards from them, as well as its Lifetime Achievement Award in 1987.
