Bryan Gruley is the author of the award-winning Starvation Lake trilogy, and the stand-alone mysteries Bleak Harbor and Purgatory Bay. His debut novel, Starvation Lake, won the Anthony, Barry, and Strand awards.

Raymond Benson is the author of nearly 40 published books, including the Black Stiletto saga and his newest book, Blues in the Dark. He is mostly known for being the first American writer to be commissioned by the James Bond literary copyright holders to take over writing the 007 novels.
