Author Information

Richard Ferrone gave up law for the stage, where as an audiobook narrator he has a penchant for action and derring-do. That quality, plus his romanticism and his gritty, masculine voice make him ideal for the tough detective novel. Peter Ganim, an Earphones Award-winning narrator, is an American actor who has appeared on stage, on television, and in film. He has performed voice-over work since 1994. David Ledoux has narrated a wide range of audio books, for which he was won and been nominated for several Audie and Earphones awards. He was named a 2010 Best Voice by AudioFile magazine for his narration of Jonathan Franzen's Freedom, and he also narrated Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants and Douglas Copeland's Nostradamus, among many others. Otto Penzler is the proprietor of the Mysterious Bookshop in New York City and the editor of many mystery anthologies, including The Encyclopedia of Mystery and Detection, for which he won an Edgar Award. He also writes a weekly column, The Crime Scene, for the New York Sun. For seventeen years Penzler served as publisher of the Armchair Detective, the Edgar Award-winning quarterly journal devoted to the study of mystery and suspense fiction. He has also created several publishing firms, such as the Mysterious Press, Otto Penzler Books, and the Armchair Detective Library. He lives in New York.
