About the Author
Praise For California Fire and Life…
“A smoking, smoldering threat of a book that flickers and flames and inevitably goes inferno. . . . Cover to cover, it is hot, hot, hot.” —Austin Chronicle
“The best crime thriller of the year. . . . Mixes two parts of Elmore Leonard with an equal portion of Carl Hiaasen to form an irreverent, ribald hybrid of a thriller that's pure fun.”
—The Providence Journal
“[Winslow finds] a dark, sinister lyricism in the forensics of fire.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“A jazzy California thriller. . . . Think Philip Marlowe if he were still sleuthing--and had taken up surfing.”
—Entertainment Weekly (Editor's Choice)
