Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes Canadian author Seamus Heffernan. As a child, Seamus Heffernan’s parents indulged him far too much in his love of comic books, crime TV and pulp novels, and this is how he has decided to repay them. Prior to his writing career, he worked in education, journalism, marketing and politics, and earned an MA in criminology from the University of the Fraser Valley. Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, he has called several places home, including a lengthy stint in London, England. He currently resides in British Columbia, where he splits his time between Abbotsford, Mission and Vancouver. His short fiction has previously appeared in The Raspberry and Louden Singletree. His latest release, TEN GRAND, is the second book in the acclaimed Thaddeus Grayle series.
About TEN GRAND:
A man wears many masks—and they all fit. A year on from the case that nearly cost him his life, private detective Thaddeus Grayle now makes a quiet living through insurance tail-jobs and corporate background checks. Unfortunately for him, a baffling new case with the promise of a big pay-off is proving too tempting to walk away from. A depressed—but very wealthy—City banker has vanished, leaving his family penniless and the police with no answers. It's the perfect case for a PI with little to lose—until Grayle unravels the truth behind the missing man's family and their desperation to find him. Returning once more to London's underworld, including gangster-run gambling dens, a billionaire ex-heroin smuggler and a sociopathic, curry-loving loan shark, Grayle must somehow stay alive long enough to save a man who might not even want to be saved.
