  • How to research the grueling details for a true crime novel
  • Perry has worked at newspapers across the country. He can talk about the ways that being a reporter in various cities has prepared him to be a fiction writer.
  • Finding inspiration for fiction crime books


Mammoth View, California is hit with the news of an attack on a summer morning. It’s not clear what happened, but it’s bad. And it’s far from over. As residents panic and leave town, the police chief and his deputy set off into the woods to investigate.

The attack seems like the perfect coincidence for Billy Lane. Looking for the biggest score of his career, he’s targeted the local bank. The robbery does not go well – and the aftermath unfolds catastrophically. Over the next twenty-four hours, chaos descends on Mammoth View—all leading back to what really happened outside of town.


Douglas Perry is an award-winning writer and editor whose work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago magazine, The Oregonian, Tennis, and many other publications. He is the author of two nonfiction books and co-author of another.   

The Wall Street Journal called Perry’s The Girls of Murder City “a sexy, swaggering, historical tale.” His biography of Eliot Ness, wrote the Christian Science Monitor, is “smart, authoritative, and bristling with challenges to the status quo.”
