About meHi, I'm Ed Lynskey.

My latest published book (7/13) is THE LADYBUG SONG the third title in the Isabel and Alma Trumbo Cozy Mystery Series. The first two titles in their series are QUIET ANCHORAGE and THE CASHMERE SHROUD.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

I live with my family and work near Washington, D.C. We're big Nationals fans. We lost our two cats Hot Rod and Stinky (20 and 14 years old, respectively) and, after a year, got a new one, Frannie. It's working out okay -- she also now rules the roost.

REVIEWS SNIPPETS OF MY BOOKS:

"Ed Lynskey's new novel PELHAM FELL HERE is a delight. With a plot as complex as your grandmother's crocheted doilies, Mr. Lynskey creates a portrait of the rural hill country that rings as true as the clank of a Copenhagen can on a Pabst Blue Ribbon can, as does his handle on guns, love, and betrayal. This is a novel well worth the read and makes me want more."
--James Crumley, Hammett Award winning author of THE LAST GOOD KISS

"A new wave of young writers is experimenting with the old-style thriller...among the most promising is Ed Lynskey...an unpredictable story filled with complex characters."
--Robert Wade (a.k.a. Wade Miller, Whit Masterson), San Diego-Union Tribune

"Lynskey has a sure hand . . . top-of-the-line hard-boiled fare."
--Booklist (Starred review)

"Packed with action . . . brings the hills to West Virginia to life with his fondness for adding local colour . . . readers with a penchant for fast-paced thrillers with grit and colour will be pleased."
--Halifax Chronicle Herald

About my libraryMy library consists primarily of mystery and literary fiction. I like to read just about everything in mysteries, including amateur sleuth, noirs, cop procedures, detective, and medical thrillers. My favorite crime authors include Bill Pronzini, Ed Gorman, Walter Mosley, just anything from Hard Case Crime and the old Gold Medal PBOs (John D. MacDonald, Gil Brewer, and Charles Williams).
