About the Author: Edward Wright

Ed Wright grew up in Arkansas, where his father sold hardware and his mother raised three children and taught arts and crafts. He has degrees from Vanderbilt University (honors, English literature) and Northwestern University (master’s, journalism). He was an officer in the U.S. Navy aboard destroyers for three years. His first major career was journalism, and he worked as an editor at the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times.
At the Times, he specialized for several years in Middle East affairs and later was one of the senior editors on the foreign desk, helping supervise the work of three dozen foreign correspondents around the world and plan coverage of events ranging from the fall of the Soviet Union to the first Persian Gulf War. He later wrote the Times’ Travel Advisory column.
Ed's second career, fiction writing, led to the John Ray Horn mysteries, set in Los Angeles during the 1940s. The series has won four awards, including the Shamus Award and Britain’s Ellis Peters Historical Crime Award. He departed from the series with his next book, “Damnation Falls,” a contemporary mystery set in small-town Tennessee, which won the Barry Award. His most recent, the thriller "From Blood," was named one of the best mysteries of 2010 by the Financial Times of London.
Ed and his wife, Cathy, a psychotherapist, live in the Los Angeles area with Magic, an irrepressible female Belgian shepherd mix. At least once a year the three of them head off to the lakes and trails of the eastern Sierra Nevada.

Una vez fue Sierra Lane, el héroe de innumerables películas de serie B del oeste. Ahora, después de dos años en prisión, John Ray Horn vive de forma muy modesta en el Los Ángeles de después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Su mujer le ha dejado, los estudios de cine le tienen en su lista negra, y se gana la vida cobrando deudas de juego para Joseph Cuervo Loco, su antiguo compañero en la gran pantalla.
Una noche, Scotty Bullard, un antiguo amigo cuyo padre —un poderoso promotor inmobiliario— acaba de morir, le telefonea. Entre las cosas del viejo Bullard, Scotty ha encontrado una serie de fotografías obscenas de chicas menores de edad, una de las cuales, tomada ya hace varios años, cree que es de Clea, la hijastra de Horn. Dos días después Scotty muere de forma violenta y Clea, que ahora tiene dieciséis años, desaparece sin dejar rastro. Horn siente que el asesinato de su amigo y la desaparición de la joven están relacionadas, y que alguien poderoso está detrás de todo, pero aun así decide investigar por su cuenta el paradero de Clea, el único recuerdo feliz de su fracasado matrimonio.
