Synopsis

Vengeance Road (A Jack Gannon Thriller) by Rick Mofina

The sins of the past shall not be forgiven...The body of Bernice Hogan, a troubled young former nursing student with a tragic past, is found in a shallow grave near a forest creek. Jolene Peller, a single mother struggling to build a new life with her little boy, vanishes the night she tries to find Bernice. Here cop Karl Styebeck is beloved by his community, but privately police are uneasy with the answers he gives to protect the life - and the lie - he's lived. The case haunts Jack Gannon, a blue-collar reporter whose own sister ran away from their family years ago. Gannon risks more than his job to pursue the story behind Styebeck's dark secret, his link to the women, and the mysterious rig roaming America's loneliest highways...

About the Author

Rick Mofina

Rick Mofina is a former crime reporter and the award-winning author of several acclaimed crime novels. He grew up east of Toronto, in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. He began writing fiction in grade school. At age 15, he sold his first short story to a U.S. magazine. In his teens he hitchhiked to California and wrote a novel about the experience. He has held jobs ranging from working at a horseracing track to delivering cars to Florida, before he attended Carleton University where he studied Journalism, English Literature, and American Detective Fiction.

He landed his first news job as a summer student at the Toronto Star, the same paper that once employed Ernest Hemingway. Rick then embarked on a career in journalism that spanned three decades in several newsrooms. His freelance crime stories have appeared around the world in such publications as the New York Times, Penthouse, Reader's Digest, Marie Claire, The South China Morning Post magazine and The Moscow Times.

His reporting has put him face-to-face with murderers on death row in Montana and Texas. He covered a horrific serial killing case in California, an armoured car heist in Las Vegas, the murders of police officers in Alberta, flown over Los Angeles with the LAPD, and gone on patrol with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police near the Arctic. He's also reported from the Caribbean, Africa, Qatar, and Kuwait's border with Iraq.

His book, BLOOD OF OTHERS won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel; and the International Thriller Writers named his book, THE DYING HOUR (on-sale in the UK in September 2009), a finalist for an inaugural Thriller Award. His books have been praised by James Patterson, Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Lee Child, Nick Stone, Tess Gerritsen, and David Morrell.

Rick is based in Ottawa, Canada.
