A Conway Sax Mystery

About this Series


The Conway Sax Mysteries, by Steve Ulfelder, is a contemporary hard boiled mystery series set in central Massachusetts and featuring Conway Sax, a smart-talking former alcoholic who owes everything he’s got to the Barnburners, the Alcoholics Anonymous group who saved him. So when they have a problem, he fixes it. The first book in the series, Purgatory Chasm, was nominated for the Edgar and Anthony Awards for Best First Novel of 2012, and won the Reviewer’s Choice Award from RT BookReviews for Best First Mystery of 2011.  Conway has been described by reviewers as “a Spenser-like paladin more plausible than Robert B. Parker’s original Spenser” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).  Of the fourth novel in the series, Wolverine Bros. Freight & Storage, Booklist raved: “the twists and turns run wildly through this story right up to the surprising ending. Ufelder, like Elmore Leonard, exemplifies contemporary noir.”
