Rick Mofina’s work is known for its gritty realism. Now a
successful Canadian crime-fiction author, Mofina began writing fiction
in grade school and sold his first short story at age fifteen to
a US magazine.
As an adult he became a true-crime reporter, a job that lead him
everywhere from face-to-face with a serial killer to an armoured
car heist to a chilly Arctic patrol with the RCMP.
Mofina’s first collection of novels followed crime reporter
Tom Reed and homicide inspector Walt Sydowski through a series of
terrifyingly realistic crime cases. No Way Back, the fourth
in the series, was praised by Michael Connelly as, “My kind
of novel – a tough, taut thriller.”
His novel Every
Fear, the second book in his acclaimed
new series, finds rookie crime reporter Jason Wade embroiled in
a baby-kidnapping case that is eerily complicated by a grisly revenge
murder. The first book in the series, The Dying Hour, hit
the top ten on Canada’s Quill & Quire’s bestseller
list and number one on Wal-Mart’s best seller list.
The author is also a dedicated family man with curious rock ‘n’ roll
Be Mine, the fifth in the series, is lauded by Dean Koontz, #1 New York Times Bestselling author: “Rick Mofina is writing a fine series: Swiftly paced, entertaining, with authentic details of police procedure.”
His novel, A Perfect Grave, the third book in his acclaimed new series featuring Jason Wade follows Wade, a troubled loner from the wrong side of the tracks, as he pursues the story of a murdered Seattle nun. The case leads him to a hermit nun who founded a mysterious religious order; and ultimately to the dark secret that has tormented his ex-cop father for decades.
