Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn, now a private investigator, may be grey-haired and pushing 60 but is definitely not ready to settle down to cats and knitting. Called “the most original female character to anchor a crime series in years,” (The New York Times) she battles serial killers, drug gangs and plenty of her own demons in Becky Masterman’s outstanding series featuring the thrillers Rage Against the Dying, Fear the Darkness, and A Twist of the Knife.
BECKY MASTERMAN, who was an acquisitions editor for a press specializing in medical textbooks for forensic examiners and law enforcement, received her M.A. in creative writing from Florida Atlantic University. Her debut thriller, Rage Against the Dying, was a finalist for the Edgar Award for Best First Novel, the CWA Gold Dagger Award for Best Crime Novel of 2013, as well as the Macavity, Barry, and Anthony awards. She won the Tony Hillerman Fiction Award for A Twist of the Knife. Becky lives in Tucson, Arizona, with her husband.
