Quotes & Awards

    Dean Koontz, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A quirky, winning tale of awful crimes and awe-inspiring detective work…Douglas knows what all the great crime writers know—that the criminologist must be at least as interesting as the crime. On that score, Douglas fits the profile.”
