The latest book from Alex Grecian
With THE SAINT OF WOLVES AND BUTCHERS (G. P. Putnam’s Sons; April 17, 2018), New York Times bestselling author Alex Grecian takes his work in an exciting new direction: this is a contemporary thriller with haunting ties to a dark past. Set on the Kansas plains, this masterfully plotted story involves a hunter of war criminals, a sharp-witted young African American female state trooper, and a sudden rash of unexplained, violent deaths. Infusing a fast-paced narrative with the same deep research that fueled his Scotland Yard Murder Squad historical thriller series, Grecian creates a gripping page-turner with unsettling relevance to the current rise of white nationalism in America today. As a Kansas native, Grecian adds an intimate understanding of the terrain and its people to his first novel set in the United States.
Alex Grecian is the author of The Yard, a New York Times bestseller that was nominated for the Barry Award and the Strand Magazine Critics Award, and was named one of the best ten crime novels of 2012 by Kirkus Reviews; The Black Country; The Devil’s Workshop, named to Suspense Magazine’s 2014 best-of-year list; The Harvest Man; and Lost and Gone Forever; as well as the critically acclaimed graphic novels Proof and Rasputin.
He has been nominated for the The Strand Award for Best Debut Novel for The Yard, the The Dilys Award for The Black Country, and the Barry Award for Best First Novel for The Yard. He was also the recipient of the Kansas Notable Book Award from the State Library of Kansas for The Yard, The Black Country, and The Devil’s Workshop.
He lives in the Midwest with his wife and son. And a dog. And a tarantula.
