Find The Cat, Catch The Killer

Dead in her penthouse apartment. Designer scarf around her neck. Dismembered finger in a place it should never be. What the police haven’t found is her diamond-and-ruby bracelet, switched with a cheap imitation. A bracelet that mysteriously ended up around the neck of a little girl’s pet cat. Now the feline is missing, the killer has struck again—and former NYPD detective Frank Quinn has to track down both the cat and the culprit before the next body drops. Quinn’s played his share of cat-and-mouse games before. But this time, when fingers are pointed, the claws come out…

“Lutz knows how to make you shiver.” —Harlan Coben on The Night Spider

“A heart-pounding roller coaster.” —Jeffery Deaver on Night Victims

“Nail-biting…dramatic suspense.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Mister X

About John Lutz:

John Lutz published his first short story in 1966 in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine and has been publishing regularly ever since. His work includes political suspense, private eye novels, urban suspense, humor, occult, crime caper, police procedural, espionage, historical, futuristic, amateur detective--virtually every mystery sub-genre. He is the author of more than thirty-five novels and 250 short stories and articles. His novels and short fiction have been translated into virtually every language and adapted for almost every medium. He is a past president of both Mystery Writers of America and Private Eye Writers of America. Among his awards are the MWA Edgar, the PWA Shamus, The Trophee 813 Award for best mystery short story collection translated into the French language, the PWA Life Achievement Award, and the Short Mystery Fiction Society's Golden Derringer Lifetime Achievement Award. He is the author of two private eye series, the Nudger series, set in his home town of St. Louis, and the Carver series, set in Florida, as well as many non-series suspense novels. His SWF SEEKS SAME was made into the hit movie SINGLE WHITE FEMALE, starring Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh, and his novel THE EX was made into the HBO original movie of the same title, for which he co-authored the screenplay.

When Lutz isn't writing, he's reading, following baseball, dining out with friends, or going to movies. He's a serious movie buff and is on the Mystery Writers of America committee this year for the Edgar Award for best mystery movie.

Lutz and his wife, Barbara, split their time between St. Louis and Sarasota, Florida.
