Publisher Description

Sam Acquillo—ex-boxer, ex–corporate executive, and accidental hero of The Last Refuge—can’t seem to stay out of trouble. All he really wants to do is hammer a few nails into his ramshackle cottage, drink a great deal of vodka, and hang out with his dog, Eddie. But when a car bomb outside a trendy waterfront restaurant kills a prominent financial consultant, injuring Sam and his lawyer friend, he is drawn into the investigation. Why would someone go to such lengths not only to kill someone but to annihilate them? Where the police have met roadblocks, Sam makes inroads with his trademark wit, instinct, and charm.

Set against the backdrop of Southampton, Long Island, Two Time is full of moody sunsets, beachfront properties, and beautiful people with an extraordinary amount of money and very dangerous secrets.

Quotes

  • “Knopf has a touch I like—cool, careful, reflective—and a great ear for the comic eccentricities of the human voice.”

    - New York Times Book Review
  • “Knopf writes with the grace of an angel and the intensity of a demon, and his stories are perfectly plotted.” 

    - Richmond Times-Dispatch
  • “A sly depiction of the east end of Long Island and the Hamptons as they really are, combined with strong plotting, solid characters, and hard-boiled dialogue worthy of Elmore Leonard or John D. MacDonald will make this a beach read that you won’t be able to put down even under threat of sunburn.”

    - Booklist (starred review)
  • “It is difficult to imagine that this is only Knopf’s second novel—it is pure gold. Everything about it (characters, plotting, setting) is brilliant.”

    - Library Journal

About the Author

Chris Knopf’s mystery novels have received exceptional awards and accolades, with critics likening his character Sam Aquillo to Dashiell Hammett’s Sam Spade, Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe, and Robert B. Parker’s Spenser, while repeatedly comparing Knopf’s work to that of Elmore Leonard, John D. MacDonald, and Ross Macdonald. Two Time was one of thirteen mysteries listed as recommended summer reading in the New York Times Book Review, and Publishers Weekly chose it as one of the “Best 100 Books for 2006.” Head Wounds won the 2008 Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Mystery. Dead Anyway was listed on the 2012 Best Fiction lists of both Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews. Knopf is a sailor, cabinetmaker, and advertising executive in Connecticut. He and his wife Mary also spend considerable time at their Long Island home in Southampton.
