Author Rick Mofina

Rick and I have e-mailed a few times and I enjoy and recommend his books.

Discover why James Patterson, Michael Connelly, Dean Koontz, Sandra Brown, Kay Hooper, Tess Gerritsen and David Morrell, have all praised the thrillers of author Rick Mofina.

His current release is A Perfect Grave. The novel concerns rookie reporter, Jason Wade, a troubled loner from the wrong side of the tracks who 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. It culminates in a life and death struggle against the clock. With time running out, Jason and his father battle the odds to confront a terrible truth .

A Perfect Grave has just been named one of the best paperbacks of 2007, by Deadly Pleasures, the online magazine known as America's premier fan-oriented mystery magazine.

Congratulations to Rick, as the book has also been picked up (in a Hardcover version) by The Mystery Guild and its affiliated book clubs.

The buzz about Mofina continues here in the U.S. and Canada.

On December 16th, Ottawa Citizen Mystery reviewer, Mike Gillespie mentioned the following tidbit in his column.
"Mofina is now working on the new standalone thriller Six Seconds, one that while a year from publication (January 2009) is already creating buzz in mystery circles after a major star in the genre previewed an early manuscript and gave it a five-star rating."

Okay, consider my interest officially piqued.

Here in the U.S., Oline H. Cogdill, mystery columnist for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, had some very kind words for the author in a recent blog posting.
